Background

Dr. Thomas McMorrow completed his doctorate and master's in law at McGill University, under the supervision of Roderick A. Macdonald, and his LLB (Law and French) at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland. Broadly speaking, his research concerns the complex relationship between law and education. Seeing law and education pluralistically—as systems and institutions but foremost as activities and intellectual frameworks—he examines the ways in which they serve to foster (and frustrate) human agency and social justice. His research on education law and legal education explicitly reflect this line of inquiry; so too, however, does his research in other substantive fields, such as disability law, Indigenous property law, legal theory, public law, and family law. He has taught numerous subjects at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT), including courses in family law, mediation, public law, and philosophy of law.
