It also shares Morse’s observations on the differences between law school in Canada and New Zealand, along with the goals he has for his time at TRU:

A few major focus points for Morse are working on providing opportunities for students to gain hands-on legal experience, offering a range of clinical legal education programs, and getting students working in legal advice clinics and other similar initiatives.

“I want to take advantage of being a new law school by being particularly innovative and creative,” he explains.
