Margaret T. Campbell, Esq. earned her undergraduate degree in Political Science, with a minor in Education from the University of Maine at Orono. She earned her Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Maine School of Law where she worked with Professor David Cluchey on his treatise Maine Criminal Practice. After being admitted to the Maine Bar she practiced with the Bangor law firms of Vafiades, Brountas & Kominsky and Cuddy & Lanham (now Lanham & Blackwell) with a focus in the areas of Real Estate, Probate, Workers Compensation and Corporate Law. She litigated cases in State and Federal Courts as well as the Maine Workers Compensation Board, Unemployment Compensation and Human Rights Commission and appeals before the Maine Supreme Court and the First Circuit Court of Appeals. She taught legal studies courses through the University of Maine system and has taught at Husson since 2004.
Being able to teach students who are so excited to learn the law is extremely rewarding. It is a testament to the teaching philosophy at Husson that I have been encouraged to create a classroom that gives a demonstrable skill to students. I have enjoyed the freedom to include supplemental materials in the classes which build upon that provided in the texts. After learning the fundamental legal concepts set out in the text, I am able to incorporate Maine cases, statutes and other "real life" experiences and projects drafting legal documents to prepare the students for work in the legal field. Practicing law in the area has given me practical experiences as well as contacts in the community which I can draw upon to show the students not only the "what" of law but the "how to" as well.
