Professor Morrison’s 50th Teaching Anniversary Celebration
September 16, 1969, marked the beginning of Professor Fred Morrison’s career of teaching and service at Minnesota Law. On that first day of the 1969-70 academic year, Morrison arrived to teach at the Law School’s original East Bank location in Fraser Hall. He joined a faculty of only 29 full-time professors - today he is one of 57 - and welcomed an incoming class comprised of less than 4% women - in stark contrast to the class of 2021 that’s over 50% women.
On September 16, 2019, Morrison will present “50 Years of MN Law” to share his observations on the evolution of the practice and teaching of law over the last half century. After the lecture, join us in Auerbach Commons to recognize Morrison’s many contributions to the Law School at what he refers to as his “mid-career celebration.”
A reception in Auerbach Commons will follow the hour-long lecture
