Professor Anderson joined Stetson's faculty in 2007 after serving one year as a visiting assistant professor of legal skills. Involved in legal education since 1996, prior to joining Stetson she spent four years as a professor of legal skills at Pierce Law in Concord, N.H., and three years as an online L.A.W. professor at Concord Law School. She has served as the program director of the legal studies program at Woodbury College in Montpelier, Vt., where she also served as the academic dean.
Professor Anderson practiced law in northern New Hampshire before entering the legal education arena. She also worked for the New Hampshire court system and as the assistant director and assistant contract officer of The Hitchcock Foundation.
Professor Anderson has written articles on topics that include parental rights of same-sex parents; parentage determinations and rights when using assisted-reproduction techniques; restrictions on non-monogamous and other alternative relationships; and adult learning theory and pedagogy. She has chronicled the grassroots advocacy process that led to the first legal recognition of marriage-like rights for same-sex couples by creating a multi-media website with documents, interviews, photos, and videos, accompanied by an iBook focused on grassroots advocacy techniques.
Professor Anderson's research focuses on assessment and learning theory as applied to legal education, and the law of sexuality, in particular, the criminalization of consensual adult sexual behavior.
