Director, Interdisciplinary Mental and Physical Health Law Clinic
Michael Campbell joined the Faculty in 2008 following three decades as a public interest attorney. Prior to coming to Villanova, he directed the Pennsylvania Health Law Project ("PHLP"), an organization that he co-founded in 1993 to represent low income Pennsylvanians seeking access to quality health care and services. He litigated individual and class actions in the state and federal courts, led community education efforts around legal aspects of Medicare, Medicaid, and Long-term Care across Pennsylvania, and represented groups in administrative rulemaking campaigns before the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and various departments of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He has testified on numerous occasions before committees of the federal and state legislature.
Professor Campbell is a graduate of Villanova University and Temple Law School. He teaches the Health Care and the Law course and is the director of the Interdisciplinary Mental and Physical Health Law Clinic, which blends the talents of graduate nurses from Villanova’s College of Nursing and Villanova law students in litigating disability, guardianship, medical necessity and other cases at the intersection of law and medicine on behalf of poor clients.
