Hallee Kansman

I’m a 2L (2nd year) law student and second year masters student in the public administration program. My specialty in law focuses on environmental and natural resources law. I’m originally from the suburbs of Detroit and received my undergraduate degree in wildlife biology from Eastern Michigan University. I’ve been coming to Montana for 15 years and am looking forward to calling Montana my home. I joined the GPSA Executive Team in hopes of creating a connected community amongst all graduate and professional programs on campus. I look forward to working with everyone!
