When I transferred to UAA, I was impressed with the level of attention I received from my professors. Class sizes were small. I was a person, not just a number.Leila Kimbrell
A born and raised Alaskan, Leila knew from a young age she had a passion for politics and the law. She started her college experience out-of-state at a larger university before transferring to UAA and receiving her bachelor’s degree in justice with a minor in political science and a paralegal certificate. Leila went on to attend law school and establish a long and successful career in law and public policy, culminating in her current position. She credits mentorship opportunities and the breadth of academic programs available at UAA as keys to her success today.
