Ruddy Abam, a Justice major and a junior at UAA, was selected to work during the 2014 Alaska legislative session as a legislative aide to Representative David Guttenberg (D) of Fairbanks.

From Cameroon, Africa, Ruddy chose to study the judicial system of the United States, and jumped at the chance to apply for the internship in Juneau. She saw this as an opportunity to learn first-hand how the legislature functions and laws are made.

Ruddy, along with two other UAA students who working as legislative aides this semester - Hans Rodvik and Victoria Yancey, are part of state government in action and will be sending word of their  experiences to the UAA community.
