Biography
Tracy Norton is a leader in the fields of legal writing and legal education, both nationally and internationally.  She is best known for her research and presentations on cross-generational competence in legal education and the legal profession.  Among her contributions to the field of legal writing are her Interactive Citation Workbook (with co-authors, Prof. Christine Hurt & Prof. Jeffrey Jackson) and accompanying online Workstation,  the first digital teaching tool in widespread use in American law schools, currently in its 17th year.  A longtime member of the Legal Writing Institute, Professor Norton served two four-year terms on its Board of Directors.

Her current scholarly interests are at the intersection of narrative factual theory and disaster law.  She also writes and speaks nationally about changes to legal education that have been inspired by the Millennial generation.  Her current teaching interest is making legal education more accessible through digital platforms.  In addition to her classroom teaching, she teaches Advanced Persuasion online.  She also helped develop and teaches in the first online pre-law program offered by full-time law professors, Portal to Law School.

She began her teaching career in 1997 at Texas Tech University School of Law, where she taught from 1997-2001.  In 2001, she joined the faculty at South Texas College of Law.  She has been with the faculty of Touro Law Center since 2007.  Prior to teaching, Professor Norton practiced criminal law in Texas.
