Katie Cook and Chris Christianson Volunteer at Thompson Diversion Training Night

Two of our attorneys, Katie Cook and Chris Christianson, both volunteered at the Black Hills State University Thompson Diversion Program training night in March. Katie and Chris helped students prepare to present their case to a jury of their peers in a mock trial, and provided helpful insights on what it’s like to go to law school and work as an attorney. Each year, the firm donates a scholarship to one student who is involved in the program!

The Thompson Diversion Program is a restorative justice program that provides BHSU students with the opportunity to learn from a poor decision without it affecting their permanent adult record.
