Prof. Periman highlighted in Willamette Lawyer - alumni magazine of Willamette University College of Law

Prof. Deb Periman, J.D., Legal Studies Program Coordinator in the Justice Center, is highlighted in the Spring 2014 issue of the Willamette Lawyer, the alumni magazine of the Willamette University College of Law.  The issue is titled, "Northern Lights: Alumni and students shine in Alaska."

Her work in helping to develop the 3+3 partnership with Willamette is described in the piece titled, "Educating Alaskans: Willamette Law launches 3+3 program partnership with University of Alaska."

“3+3” refers to 3 years of undergraduate credits plus 3 years of law school. Through this partnership with Willamette, UAA students from any major who have completed their required disciplinary credits, all of their GER credits, and a total of 90 credits overall, may apply for admission to Willamette University College of Law.

The issue also contains profiles of alums who practice in Alaska, including Mary Hughes, who is a Willamette trustee, and a member of the University of Alaska Board of Regents.
