Professor Griffin Featured in Las Vegas City Life Article

The Boyd School of Law is very pleased to announce that Professor Leslie Griffin was featured in a Las Vegas City Life article published on February 6, 2013. Titled "The Dangerous Illusion of Abortion Rights," the article lauded a panel convened on January 31, 2013, by Planned Parenthood of Southern Nevada that included Professor Griffin as well as Congresswoman Shelley Berkley, UNLV History Professor Joanne Goodwin, and Director of UNLV's Jean Nidetch Women's Center Christina Hernandez.

At the January 31 program, Professor Griffin and her co-panelists examined the past, present, and uncertain future of abortion access. "A passionate crowd of nearly 100 people — perhaps half of them born after the court ruling, most of them women and among them doctors and medical students — listened intently and shared their own stories."

Professor Griffin currently serves as William S. Boyd Professor of Law. She is author of Law and Religion: Cases and Materials; editor of Law and Religion: Cases in Context; and author of numerous articles and book chapters about law, religion, politics and ethics. Professor Griffin is a graduate of Yale University (M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D., Religious Studies) and Stanford Law School.
