Laurie Morin is a Professor and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.  In her role as Associate Dean, Professor Morin is responsible for ensuring that the academic program meets the standards of the American Bar Association.  She plans the academic calendar and course schedules, advises students on academic requirements, and oversees the faculty development program. 

Prior to taking on the role of Associate Dean, Professor Morin was a supervising attorney in the Community Development Law Clinic (CDLC), which represents low-income entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations, tenants’ associations and community-based organizations in a variety of transactional law matters.  The CDLC’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for low-income people in the District of Columbia by assisting clients who provide economic opportunities, affordable housing, and valuable social services to D.C. residents and communities. 

Professor Morin is also the co-founder (with Professors Susan Waysdorf and William McLain) of an innovative service learning course at UDC-DCSL, Katrina and Beyond: The Role of Disaster Law in Preventing Catastrophes, Reclaiming Rights and Restoring Communities in the Face of Disasters (now the Service-Learning Seminar).  This social justice seminar includes a service learning experience in which faculty members and students travel together to the Gulf Coast to assist with the ongoing recovery and aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and other disasters, such as the BP oil spill.

Professor Morin’s interests include the scholarship of teaching and learning and the future of legal education.  She serves as a member of the University Leadership Group on Learning Outcomes Assessment, and as Chair of the School of Law’s outcomes assessment project.
