About Me

Priscilla Norwood Harris has taught law for over twenty years. Currently, she is serving as the Interim Director of the Legal Research & Writing Program (LRW) and is excited to be working on reinvigorating and revamping the LRW Program and as well as implementing the newly required third semester of LRW, Appellate Advocacy.   

Earlier, as a 2016-2017 U.S. Core Fulbright Scholar, she taught undergraduate and graduate students at Vilnius University and worked with Lithuanian courts, including the Lithuania Court of Appeals and the Lithuanian Supreme Court. She has also taught undergraduate business students in China. In addition, she has taught graduate students at several American law schools, including LL.M. students at Vanderbilt Law School. Besides teaching, she has conducted public health field research in Appalachia funded by a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation program. Her research interests include public health law, environmental law, and legal research and writing. 

She received her J.D. from University of Pennsylvania Law School and her B.A. from Florida State University. Before teaching, she practiced law for over ten years in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C, in firms of all sizes as well as worked in a state appellate court.
