Kimberly Jade Norwood, Professor of Law — Washington University in St. Louis School of Law
After law school Professor Norwood clerked for the Honorable Clifford Scott Green, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. She then joined the law firm of Bryan, Cave LLP in St. Louis, Missouri as a litigation associate for several years before joining Washington University in 1990. At the law school Professor Norwood has focused her research on black identity, colorism, and the intersection of race, class, and public education. She has also created and developed a unique service learning program for which she has won several awards that allows law students to received law school credit and high school students to receive mentoring and guidance for a possible future career in the law. The experience also involves actual court exposure before judges in their respective courtrooms.
As part of the law school’s Africa Public Interest Law & Conflict Resolution Initiative, Norwood has supervised public interest externships for law students working in Ghana and Kenya. Norwood has also taught law courses overseas at Universiteit Utrecht in The Netherlands, Fudan University in Shanghai, China, and at Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo, Japan. She taught legal research and writing for the law school as an adjunct for several years before joining the law faculty and she has also taught in the Council on Legal Education Opportunity (CLEO) Program.
She also is both Editor and Contributor of a new book, published in 2013 by Routledge, entitled “Color Matters: Skin Tone Bias & the Myth of a Post-Racial America.”
