Vic Braden, the leader of the Kansas Attorney General’s Criminal Litigation Division, which focuses on the prosecution of murderers, major illicit drug traffickers and child predators came and shared with Ms. Kohman’s Business Law students about criminal law and how to apply the law to different cases.  Mr. Braden allowed for a question and answer session and he spoke about the past trial that students were able to attend during the state witness testimony as well as closing arguments. 

Mr. Braden spoke about the different factors that make up the law and how the court system works.  He also encouraged students to learn to communicate effectively through writing and speaking in front of groups.  Vic Braden is a tremendous prosecutor with more than 18 years of experience.  Vic has handled numerous high-profile murder cases in Kansas, including those that qualify for the death penalty.

It was great for the students to see Pratt High graduate, Vic Braden, with vast experiences, titles and accomplishments.  In addition to his civilian career, Vic is a Major General in the Army National Guard.  He is currently serving as the Commanding General, 35th Infantry Division, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. 

Vic Braden started out in Pratt just like our kids are doing today. He is a 1978 graduate from Pratt High School, the 2008 Pratt Community College Alumnus of the Year, and a 2011 Leadership Kansas graduate.

He earned his Juris Doctor from Washburn University’s School of Law in 1998, and received a National Security Fellowship from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government in 2005.
