Email: randerson@dordt.edu

I've been an attorney since 1983 and have practiced California, Rhode Island and since 2007, Iowa.  My undergradute degree was in Criminal Justice earned in 1974 at California State University, Fullerton.  My practice has been primarily in criminal defense since 2007 in Iowa.  I've been a Christian since 1975, am married since 1980 and have four adult children.  A son, Timothy, just graduated from Iowa State University, majoring in Criminal Justice and plans to start law school in the Fall at the University of Nebraska.  More information about my professional life can be found on my website at www.robertandersonlaw.com.  

I'm looking forward to exploring the world of criminal justice with my class and to many highly interesting class discussions.   I have many stories to tell, some of which will surprise my students.  As well, I'm looking forward to getting to know young men and women who are part of a unique and gifted group of people, comprising the Dordt "family." 

I'm also very motivated to do whatever I can to inspire, motivate and encourage each and every student to expect great things from God as they endeavor to serve Him in whatever capacity He leads them. 

I taught in law school for 2 1/2 years and from that experience know first-hand the benefit of giving of myself professionally to help others as they seek to learn and prepare themselves for a satisfying, effective and fruitful career.  Thus, I have great hope and expectation for the time at Dordt and expect that our Lord will be there for each of us.  God bless you all!
