Campbell was nominated by ABA president Laurel Bellows and approved by a three-member sub-committee of ABA Board of Governors Operations Committee.
He was recognised for his contribution to the ABA’s efforts to liberalise market access for lawyers and law firms abroad; his dedication as DLA Piper’s general counsel to engage his firm in pro bono advocacy around the world; this commitment to improving access to justice and the rule of law; and his leadership in promoting gender and racial equity and mentoring associates and staff at his firm.
