Ian C. Bartrum is Associate Professor of Law at the UNLV Boyd School of Law.

On June 27, he was quoted in the Las Vegas Sun article Nevada same-sex couples still in limbo after Supreme Court rulings. "The ruling says across the board, all kinds of federal benefits now apply to people who got married in another state but now live in Nevada. And the huge neighbor to the West just legalized same-sex marriage ... within a couple of weeks, we may see more people transplanting to Nevada who have California same-sex marriages. So the state may end up having to administer benefits to married couples it doesn't actually recognize. It's a pretty interesting mess," he said.

Professor Bartrum's research interests are in constitutional history and theory, the Establishment Clause, and constitutional education.
