Morgan Franklin

Lecturer on Law, Harvard Law School
Clinical Instructor, HNMCP

Morgan is a Clinical Instructor at HNMCP and Lecturer on Law in the Negotiation Workshop at Harvard Law School.

Her interest in dispute resolution and negotiation stems from an interest in cognitive and behavioral science paired with her belief in the field’s importance in addressing societal challenges. Since her involvement with negotiation theory as a student she’s been able to experience how transformative gaining the skill set taught by the clinic can be, both professionally and personally.

Morgan holds a B.A. in Political Economy, magna cum laude, from Tulane University and is originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. She received her J.D. from Harvard Law School in 2017 and is a member of the Maryland Bar. As a law student she was fortunate to take classes related to problem solving in various contexts, from administrative organizations to direct services.

After law school Morgan completed a fellowship in Baltimore that focused on health policy at the local level and then worked in Washington, D.C. on a team that sought to aid the path to effective reentry for the recently incarcerated by convening groups with divergent views and facilitating dialogue between them to identify workable policy solutions. She then returned to HNMCP and served as Clinical Fellow before shifting into her current role.
