UMKC Selects Larsen for Alumni Award
On Thursday, April 22nd, Chief Magistrate Judge Robert E. Larsen will be presented with an Alumni Achievement Award from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Judge Larsen will be honored as part of the Celebration 2010 Awards Luncheon held at Pierson Auditorium and hosted by the UMKC Alumni Association.
Dean Ellen Y. Suni describes Judge Larsen as a natural teacher and one who has been extraordinarily generous to the Law School with his time and talents. "His courses help bridge what often appears to be a gap for students between theory and practice, providing them with important hands-on skills," stressed Dean Suni. And she is quick to point out that Judge Larsen has been instrumental to the success of the Moot Court Program.
Judge Larsen has a proud history of involvement with UMKC as both a teacher and a volunteer. When he was an Assistant United States Attorney, he taught a Criminal Trial Techniques class at the UMKC School of Law. He continues that tradition today, currently teaching a class on Advanced Criminal Procedure and Evidence. He serves as a judge for the moot court competition, actively recruits other volunteer judges, and he is a frequent speaker at educational programs sponsored by the University.
Congratulations Judge Larsen!
