Dr. Lindsay Head is an active member of the Florida Bar and practiced general civil litigation and family law at a medium-sized law firm in South Florida, where she directed and supervised the firm’s internship program. Recognizing her passion for teaching, she later returned to academia and earned a Ph.D. in English—with a concentration in Writing, Rhetoric, and Culture. Her scholarship and teaching focus on the intersections of rhetorical theory and legal discourse, criminal procedure and Fourth Amendment jurisprudence, rhetoric of citizenship and identity, composition theory, oral advocacy, and legal writing pedagogy. Dr. Head regularly presents her research at local, national, and international conferences, and she founded the Legal Writing and Rhetoric Standing Group for the national Conference on College Composition and Communication. She previously taught at St. Thomas University College of Law, Florida International University, and Louisiana State University.
