Prof. Deb Periman, Justice Center faculty and Paralegal Studies Certificate Program Coordinator, and LaQuana Robertson, UAA Paralegal Studies alum, were among the participants in a roundtable discussion at the May 18 Anchorage Bar Association Young Lawyers Section lunch. The focus of the presentation was what young lawyers need to know about what paralegals do and to how to work effectively as a team with a paralegal.

The panel included paralegals from a variety of legal areas: LaQuana Richardson with the State Attorney General Human Services Section; Kim Pinkerton with Alutiiq LLC (Afognak Native Corporation); Paula Zawodny with Sonosky, Chambers, Sachse, Miller & Munson; and Tiffany Roberts with the State Attorney General Child Protection Section.
