Hilary Evans Cameron is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Law at TMU. Prior to joining the faculty, she represented refugee claimants for over a decade and draws on her first-hand experience in clinical practice for law reform. A major focus of her work has been the process of judging a refugee claimant’s credibility. Her research brings insights from the social sciences, particularly cognitive psychology, to bear on this central aspect of refugee status decision-making. She collaborates with psychologists, data scientists, and lawyers within TMU and at other academic institutions.
