By PFM Search

PFM Executive Search is thrilled to announce the appointment of Karen Campbell as the new Executive Director for the British Columbia Law Institute! She will commence her employment on September 8, 2020.

Karen brings over 20 years of experience practicing public interest law in British Columbia – most of which has involved law reform and advocacy for strengthened legal tools. Her work has consistently been designed to address access to justice issues, using both Indigenous and Crown legal frameworks. In her previous positions, Karen forged effective relationships with a broad range of stakeholders, developed creative approaches to legal challenges, and contributed to both federal and provincial law reform initiatives. She holds a Bachelor of Laws degree from Dalhousie University and a Master of Laws from the University of London, England.

Karen will work with the BCLI Board of Directors to advance BCLI’s and the Canadian Centre for Elder Law’s (CCEL) missions, to improve and modernize the law, and to increase access to justice. Under Karen’s leadership, BCLI will continue its independent and excellence-driven research, expand community engagement, and drive innovation to improve access to justice, support of older adults, and a broad range of laws. Through her collaboration with government and key provincial and national stakeholders, Karen will support BCLI and CCEL to address fundamental legal and systemic issues, and to develop just and innovative solutions towards a better future for Canada’s aging population and for all British Columbians.
