Students in Prof. Knudsen's Civil Procedure class present mock oral arguments before Administrative Law Judge Andrew Hemenway

Prof. Kristin Knudsen, J.D., M.L.S., Legal Studies faculty in the Justice Center, recently held mock oral arguments in her Legal 367 - Civil Procedure and PreTrial Practice course   Students were given an actual pending U.S. Supreme Court case which they then researched to determine what issues arose at the U.S. District Court level that prompted the appeal of the denial of class decertification. Their mock oral arguments replicated the proceedings at the U.S. District Court.

Students presented their arguments before long-time Juneau Administrative Law Judge Andrew Hemenway, who now serves as the Chair of the Alaska Workers' Compensation Appeals Commission.
