Eunice C. Peters
Associate Professor of Law,
Washburn University School of Law
Eunice Peters is a 2006 graduate of Washburn University School of Law. Following law school, she served as chambers counsel for Judge Stephen D. Hill of the Kansas Court of Appeals. Professor Peters has also served in various capacities in the Kansas Office of Revisor of Statutes, the Kansas Judicial Branch Office of Judicial Administration, the Kansas Department of Labor, and most recently as an assistant city attorney for the City of Manhattan, Kansas. These positions provided Professor Peters the opportunity to draft legal documents, legislation, rules and regulations, ordinances, and research memos in all three branches of state government and in local government. As interim Chief Counsel and Deputy Chief Counsel of the Kansas Department of Labor, she further drafted policies and procedures, multi-million-dollar technology contracts, data privacy agreements, legal opinions, court pleadings, news releases, and social media communications.
Professor Peters has devoted her Kansas bar service to challenging lawyers to consider their impact on our legal system and profession, presenting continuing legal education programs and workshops on lawyer well-being, diversity, inclusion, and equity, the legislative process, and becoming a judge. She has served as president of the Kansas Women Attorneys Association, at-large board of governor for the Kansas Bar Association, and chair of numerous other committees within the Kansas legal community. For her work, in 2018, she received the Diversity Award from the Kansas Bar Association, which recognizes those who significantly advance diversity by their conduct.
In 2021, Professor Peters founded yogaJD™ and provides yoga offerings to women law students and attorneys as a way to sustain their own well-being in a legal system that operates around people living in crisis.
