Prof. Periman is chair of the drafting sub-committee for this web-based guide to Alaska law for teens and young adults. The LRE Committee-sponsored project is modeled on youth law guides developed by the California and Montana State Bars. Over 25 Alaska Bar members volunteered to write brief summaries of Alaska law for the publication. The LRE Committee is made up of Alaska Bar members and Alaska educators.
There will be a gradual rollout on the web starting in the summer 2012 as chapters become available. There are plans for a printed hard copy once the guide is complete.
