KAMLOOPS – After nearly a year without an official dean, the TRU law school will have a new face in the hallways.
Bradford Morse has accepted the position and is due to start this fall.
“TRU has a bright future with strong leadership and my role as the new dean will be to enhance the reputation and performance of our law school,” said Morse in a press release.
The announcement of the new dean comes on the heels of the first graduating class which celebrated last Saturday.
Morse joins TRU after spending five years as a professor and dean of the University of Waikato’s law school in New Zealand.
Before his experience abroad, Morse was a professor and vice-dean of the faculty of law at the University of Ottawa.
As a professor, Morse taught courses surrounding the topics of indigenous law issues, labour law, trusts along with property and civil liberties.
Morse has authored over 100 articles, books, book chapters and commission reports.
He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers University, a Bachelor of Laws from UBC and a Masters degree of laws from Osgoode Hall. He has practiced law since 1979.
Morse will take the place of founding dean Chris Axworthy after his resignation in 2013. Shortly after the announcement of his resignation, Axworthy spoke to media and said he resigned due to disagreements with upper management.
