He received high honors for his graduation and served as the Boston University Law Review’s chief editor from 1967 to 1969. He served as Judge Sterry R. Waterman’s legal clerk for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit from 1969 to 1970.

In Burlington, Vermont, he opened a private practice after that. From 1981 to 1988, Morse served as a judge on the Vermont Superior Court. On September 23, 1988, Morse was appointed to the state supreme court by Governor Madeleine Kunin.

This resulted from Frank G. Mahady‘s lack of confirmation by the state senate and the passing of Thomas L. Hayes. On January 16, 2003, Morse resigned from the court to take a position as Commissioner of the Department of Social and Rehabilitative Services. At 82, Morse passed away on January 13, 2023.
