ALSC’s Volunteer of the Month for March 2023 is Julie Wrigley! Julie has been an ALSC pro bono attorney since 2021, answering calls on the Landlord/Tenant Helpline. Thank you, Julie, for your pro bono service.
Why did you choose to volunteer with ALSC?
Since I’ve changed my primary career focus to educating college students about the law, working as a volunteer attorney gives me the opportunity to continue to practice law in a meaningful way.
What are some of your experiences at ALSC that have made a positive difference in the lives of others and/or the community?
Working the Landlord Tenant Helpline through the pandemic gave me the opportunity to help Alaskans navigate the confusing and ever-changing eviction and housing rights laws.
How do you think your experiences with ALSC will benefit you in the future?
The helpline provides me with an opportunity to stay meaningfully connected with the legal issues landlords and tenants face in Alaska. I can relate these current issues to my students in class, so they are more informed as renters and landlords in the future.
What do you do when you are not volunteering with ALSC?
I’m working as an Assistant Professor of Management at the College of Business and Public Policy at UAA. In my spare time, I ski hike, fish, and enjoy being outside in nature.
