CHICAGO — Sidley Austin has hired Kathy Morris to be its first chief training and professional development officer in Chicago. Morris, 57, was chief career development officer from 2004 to 2007 at Gardner Carton & Douglas, which announced last year that it would merge with Drinker Biddle & Reath. She was the director of the American Bar Association’s career resource center and held other positions there related to continuing legal education from 1996 to 2004. Prior to joining the ABA, she was director of professional training at Katten Muchin &Zavis, now Katten Muchin Rosenman, from 1989 to 1996. Morris also practiced as a trial and appellate attorney in the 1970s in Chicago at the Office of the State Appellate Defender and in Honolulu at the law offices of Hart, Leavitt and Hall. She has also taught at Northwestern University School of Law. “Sidley is committed to providing a quality training program that not only continues the education of our most junior associates, but also provides a platform for the continuing professional development of all of our lawyers,” said Virginia Aronson, a member of the firm’s executive and management committees.
