Event Description:


HOW TO BE AN INFORMED VOTER ON THE JUDGES
OF THE NOV. 6TH BALLOT 


Alaska's judges preside over business-related trials that can involve real estate, business contracts, employment issues, landlord-tenant disputes and small claims filings. Retired Alaska Superior Court Judge Karen Hunt will explain the judicial evaluation and retention election portion of Alaska's merit-based judicial selection and retention process and will inform on how Alaskans can be educated voters on the judges on the Nov. 6th ballot.
 



Retired Alaska Superior Court Judge Karen Hunt was appointed as a judge in 1984.  She holds the distinction of being the first woman from Anchorage to be appointed to the Superior Court. Judge Hunt served until her retirement in 2000.

She is the only person to have been president of the Anchorage Bar Association, the Alaska Bar Association, and the Alaska Judges Conference. She was also founding President of the Anchorage Association of Women Lawyers.  Active in judicial education before retirement, she continues that work to date.  She teaches judicial writing and decision making to American and foreign judges both in the United States and in their home countries.  She is also active in many Alaska non-profit organizations such as Commonwealth North.  She was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Alaska at Anchorage in 2015 for her voluntary public service.
