Richard Stanley Campbell (born November 13, 1946 in Drumheller, Alberta; deceased March 16, 1989) was a Canadian lawyer, influential on British Columbia public policy through his role as a legal expert in public commissions that informed forestry and civil engineering policy.

Campbell graduated from the Peter A. Allard School of Law at University of British Columbia in the class of 1972. Campbell served as Secretary to the 1976 British Columbia Royal Commission on Forest Resources.[1], which proposed reforms to the province's tenure system to increase equitable competition for timber harvest[2]. He later served as legal advisor on the Ombudsman of British Columbia's Special Report on the Shoal Island Case[3], and legal consultant to the British Columbia Select Standing Committee on Forests and Lands to advise on their 1989 report on regulation of timber contracts[4]

In 1989, Campbell was appointed legal counsel to the British Columbia Commissioner Inquiry into the Station Square collapse, where 6,400 square feet of rooftop parking fell into the produce section of the Save-on-Foods below, injuring 21 people[5].

After Campbell's death, the Richard Campbell Memorial Scholarship was established to recognize students at the Peter A. Allard School of Law with a background in forestry or other resource industries.

Campbell was the son of National Hockey League player, Don Campbell, of the Chicago Blackhawks, and nephew of Alberta politician, John Murray Campbell
