Personal profile

Biography

Professor Liz Campbell is the inaugural Francine McNiff Chair in Criminal Jurisprudence at Monash Law, having previously been Professor of Criminal Law at Durham University, UK. She is also adjunct professor at Queensland University of Technology School of Justice.

Professor Campbell is a global expert in corporate crime, organised crime, corruption, and biometric evidence. Her research is socio-legal in considering the law in context, and often involves a comparative dimension. There is an empirical element to some of her work, such as in the project on “Corporate Vehicles – Understanding the use of ‘Licit’ Corporate Entities by Transnational Organised Crime Groups in the Concealment, Conversion and Control of Illicit Finance”.

Professor Campbell publishes widely in leading international journals. Her publications include a research monograph on Organised Crime and the Law (Hart, 2013), an edited collection on Corruption in Commercial Enterprise (Routledge, 2018), a jointly written book on The Collection and Retention of DNA from Suspects in New Zealand with Nessa Lynch (Victoria University Press, 2015) and a textbook on Criminal Law in Ireland (Clarus, 2010). She is working on the fifth edition of The Criminal Process (formerly by Professor Andrew Ashworth and Professor Mike Redmayne) (OUP, forthcoming 2019).

She sits on a number of editorial boards and is a member of the UK's Arts and Humanities Research Council Peer Review College.

Professor Campbell's research has significant impact outside academia. Her research has been cited by the Irish Supreme Court and relied upon in argument before the UK Supreme Court. Her work has also been cited in reports of law reform commissions.

Professor Campbell is an appointed member of the UK Home Office Biometrics and Forensics Ethics Group, and previously she chaired Durham Constabulary's Ethics Committee and served on the NHS Research Ethics Committee (Scotland).
