Prof. Knudsen is Attorney Connect volunteer judge for Dimond High Drama, Debate and Forensics Tournament

Prof. Kristin Knudsen, J.D., Legal Studies faculty in the Justice Center, was a volunteer judge for the recent Dimond High Drama, Debate, and Forensics Tournament sponsored by the Anchorage School District. Over 180 students competed from 13 schools in communities around the state including Sitka, Delta Junction, Homer, and the Mat-Su.

Prof. Knudsen was one of several attorneys who volunteered as part of the Attorney Connect program, a project of the Alaska Bar's Law Related Education (LRE) Committee. The goal is to create a liaison between the schools and attorneys who are interested in legal education for their students.

UAA Seawolf Debate Team members were also volunteer judges at the event.
