Lee’s Summit student receives multiple honors

November 27, 2013 

Kristen Wagner, Lee’s Summit, was named president of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys’

student chapter at the University of Missouri School of Law. In addition, she was named vice president of Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity and was selected as a new member of the Phi Delta Phi law fraternity at MU law school.

MATA is a state-wide association dedicated to maintaining high standards of professional ethics, competency and demeanor among trial attorneys. Phi Alpha Delta is the world’s largest law fraternity and was founded in 1902. Phi Delta Phi was established in 1869 to promote a higher standard of professional ethics among attorneys.

“Accomplishing these achievements is exciting because my hard work has paid off,” Wagner said. “These achievements have made opportunities for me that will better prepare me in my legal career.”

Wagner graduated from Lee’s Summit North High School in 2007 and is currently studying law at MU. This past summer she attended the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys convention at the Lake of the Ozarks. She also attended symposiums where attorneys taught trial tactics and spoke about their career experiences. She is the daughter of Karen and Jeff Wagner.
