Kim Morse
Associate Director of Writing Support Services

Professor Kim Morse joined SLU LAW in 2005 after ten years of teaching critical reasoning, writing and research to undergraduates and graduates. Morse draws on her undergraduate and graduate studies in philosophy and writing pedagogy to make legal analysis and writing more accessible for the budding law student.

Morse is committed to developing student excellence in legal writing. Besides offering legal writing workshops throughout the academic year, she advises students on both class and non-class writing projects. In 2006, she founded the country’s first Student Legal Writers’ Association at the School of Law. In addition to offering writing events, the writers’ forum allows students to work on independent projects to develop their legal writing and research outside of class with the aim of publishing their scholarship. She has also filled the gap for regional law students wishing to sharpen their presentation and scholarship skills by establishing a successful Annual Law Student Symposium.

Professor Morse’s research interests include legal writing pedagogy, curriculum development, history of legal education,and law in higher education.
