Dean Rapoport Essay Highlighted in The Wall Street Journal Law Blog

The Boyd School of Law is very pleased to announce that Interim Dean and Gordon Silver Professor of Law Nancy Rapoport recently placed an essay ("Managing U.S. News & World Report - The Enron Way") in volume 48, issue 2, of the Gonzaga Law Review.  The Boyd School of Law is also proud to announce that Dean Rapoport's essay was featured in an April 26, 2013, The Wall Street Journal Law Blog post ("Law Schools and the 'Enron Way'") authored by Jacob Gershman.

According to Gershman, "In pursuit of higher rankings, law schools risk falling into an Enron-like trap, according to a new law review essay.  Nancy B. Rapoport, the interim dean of University of Nevada’s William S. Boyd School of Law in Las Vegas, sees parallels between incentives that encourage law schools to embellish data and incentives that helped drive Enron into the ground."  To read more of Gershman's blog post, click here.

Congratulations, Nancy!
