The Office of Pre-Law Advising and Pre-Law Ambassadors are excited to welcome Judge Meryl D. Wilson, Chief Judge of the Riley County District Court, as the debut speaker for our new Legal Speaker Series. The Speaker Series is designed to give students at Kansas State University more exposure to the vast array of legal professions through expert speakers in diverse legal professions.

Judge Wilson is a Kansas State University alum with a history of interesting legal work, including once suing the school.   He graduated from Kansas State in 1971 with a degree in History and received his law degree from Washburn University. He was engaged in the private practice of Law before joining the bench as District Judge on April 18, 1997 and has been serving Riley County ever since.

 Judge Wilson will speak to students about his own legal career, preparing for and attending law school, the path to becoming a judge and the view from the Bench.   This event requires an RSVP as seats are limited.

Legal Life Hacks Panel

Tuesday, February 27, 2018

6:30 - 8:30 PM

Wildcat Chamber

Do you know what rights you have when the police show up at your door? Would you know what to do if you were asked to take a Breathalyzer? Do you know what to do if you think your landlord is violating your lease? What would you do if you are at a party and think someone is being sexually assaulted?

Almost everyone will, at some point, interact with the police and our courts. However, many people, especially students, don’t fully understand how to navigate our complicated justice system. For this reason, the Pre-Law Ambassadors and Office of Pre-Law Advising have created a panel to help you better understand your rights and obligations when dealing with the police, courts, and life in general. 

Our panelists:

  • Hon. Ryan W. Rosauer: District Court Judge for the 8th Judicial District of Kansas
  • Britain D. Stites, Esquire: City Prosecutor, Junction City

Moderator: Benjamin E. Long, Esquire of Schlagel Long, LLC

Time will be reserved for questions after the panelists speak. This is a great opportunity to learn from legal experts and have your questions answered. This event is free and open to the public.

This is a wonderful opportunity to see how law school classes are taught and have your questions answered by a distinguished law professor.

State and federal courts at all levels cite Mulligan's scholarship regularly.”
