Our Team: More Great Environmental Lawyers
Jackie Campbell. B.Sc.(Pharm.), LLB
As both a lawyer and pharmacist, Jackie enjoys practicing all aspects of environmental law. At Saxe Law Office, she has many opportunities to pursue her particular interest in the impacts that environmental issues have on human and animal health.
Jackie especially enjoys complex legal and medical research and writing, and frequently contributes to journals, magazines, client newsletters and our envirolaw.com blog. As well, she has her own environmental issues column in Pharmacy Practice, a resource read by most pharmacists across the country.
As a drug information pharmacist at the Ontario Pharmacist Association’s Drug Information and Research Centre, she researches medication-related issues and advises health care professionals as well as the lay public.
Jackie presents to industry associations on environmental-legal issues impacting their businesses (e.g., current issues in dealing with pharmaceutical waste; impact of new septage treatment guidelines to sewage haulers; updates on laws relating to metal finishing operations).
She is a board member of the Canadian Environmental Law Association and recently completed requirements to be a Master Gardener. When not at the office, Jackie can be found happily puttering in her garden.
