Naomi Campbell is director of the Right Question Institute’s Legal Program. She is leading RQI’s efforts to promote the adoption of the Right Question Strategy in legal practice settings serving low-income communities. She is also a member of the Microdemocracy team, collaborating on RQI’s voter engagement, school-family partnerships, health care, and social services programs.
Naomi has dedicated her career to helping people advocate for themselves and have a voice in decisions that affect them. She earned her J.D. from Harvard Law School, where she was a student attorney in the Immigration and Refugee Clinic (representing women from Central America in their asylum cases) and the Negotiation and Mediation Clinic (focusing on dispute systems design). She was a teaching assistant for HLS’s Negotiation Workshop, for students across disciplines, and for an executive course on negotiation. She is passionate about the idea that anyone can learn skills to take action on their own behalf.
After law school, she was a legal fellow with Centro de los Derechos del Migrante (CDM) in Mexico City, working to promote justice for low-wage workers in the U.S.-Mexico migrant stream.
Naomi worked with RQI from 2012-2013, prior to law school, and she returned to RQI after seeing more clearly than ever the need for people far from power to acquire skills to help them navigate through an overwhelming and disempowering legal system, partner with legal professionals, and advocate for themselves. She is excited about the chance to work with determined, idealistic legal professionals who have committed their careers to serving the most vulnerable.
Naomi is admitted to practice law in the state of New York.
