Professor Moore started at the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) School of Law in 1998 after earning a master’s degree in laws at Columbia University School of Law, where he was named a James Kent Scholar. His practice experience includes representing indigent immigrants in Baltimore, Maryland and research and report writing for a human rights organization in Washington, D.C. He was a member of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) from 1993 until 2002.

In 2000, Professor Moore founded the immigration law clinic at UDM with the support of the Jesuits.  Immigration law is one of Professor Moore’s scholarly interests as well as human rights. He has written articles on refugee issues between the U.S. and Canada and widespread fraud in the provision of legal services to immigrants.

In addition to being a faculty member, Professor Moore serves as chair of the Mission and Identity Committee, organizes the two main liturgical events for the law school (Baccalaureate Liturgy and the Red Mass) and serves as moderator for the St. Thomas More Society.
