Administrative Law Judge Mary DuFour Morrow serves as a hearing officer and presides over Title IX adjudications for educational institutions nationwide. 

 

Judge Morrow has a long career in public service with a focus on criminal justice, higher education, and administrative law.

Prior to joining the federal government as an administrative law judge, Judge Morrow served as an assistant prosecuting attorney with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, where she handled hundreds of felony cases, including sexual assaults.  In 2010, she was named Project Director for the National Institute of Justice Detroit Sexual Assault Kit Action Research Project, which examined over 11,000 untested rape kits dating back 25 years.  During the project, Judge Morrow oversaw the development of model policies and procedures pertaining to victim notification and the adjudication of sexual assault cases.  

Judge Morrow brought her extensive experience in sexual assault to the University of Michigan where she worked as a Title IX Investigator in 2015, conducting sensitive investigations into allegations of sexual misconduct and determining whether the institutions’s code of conduct had been violated.

In 2016,  Judge Morrow joined the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan as the Project Director of a statewide Sexual Assault Kit Initiative.   As part of that project, she organized and directed the inventory and testing of all rape kits statewide, and she developed multidisciplinary training for law enforcement, victim advocates, and prosecutors that addresses the complex issues associated with sexual assault cases. 

Judge Morrow has been the recipient of the prestigious "Champion of Justice" award from the State Bar of Michigan and the “Advocate of the Year” award from the Michigan Council on Child and Maternal Health.  She is a graduate of Wayne State University and the Wayne State University Law School.
