Camille Carey joined the UNM law faculty in the 2009-2010 school year. Prior to coming to UNM, she was a clinical lecturer and Robert M. Cover Teaching Fellow at Yale Law School, where she established and taught the Domestic Violence Clinic, which focused on serving immigrant and low-income women.
Carey worked for six years at the Legal Aid Society of New York in the civil division. At Legal Aid, she developed a project that provided comprehensive civil legal assistance to immigrant victims of domestic violence in immigration, family law, public benefits and housing cases. She also worked on MKB v. Eggleston, a federal class action lawsuit, which successfully challenged the City and the State of New York's failure to provide public benefits to eligible immigrants.
Carey's research and teaching interests include immigration, immigrant rights, family law, domestic violence, feminist legal theory and torts. At the UNM School of Law, she teaches Torts, Immigrants' Rights, and the Community Lawyering Clinic.
