Prof. Knudsen publishes report - "Alaska Boards and Commissions - Results of the Alaska Citizen Members Survey"
Prof. Kristin Knudsen, J.D., Justice faculty, recently published a report for the Alaska Office of Boards and Commission - Office of the Governor entitled Alaska Boards and Commissions - Results of the Alaska Citizen Members Survey.
Her report presents information on reported participation, role perception, attitudes toward law, recruitment and satisfaction with experience among lay members of mixed administrative tribunals based on a survey of lay members of Alaska’s adjudicatory boards and commissions.
Prof. Knudsen's report was the basis for her recent presentations on lay participation in mixed administrative tribunals to staff of the State of Alaska Office of Administrative Hearings.
A “mixed” administrative tribunal is an appointed board or commission that decides legal issues with the involvement of a professional administrative law judge; this involvement varies in degree and methods, depending on the tribunal’s rules and statutes.
