Associate Professor Addie Rolnick Provides Commentary on KNPR's State of Nevada

Addie Rolnick is an Associate Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On July 17, she provided commentary on KNPR's State of Nevada segment titled Trayvon Martin Verdict Echoes In Las Vegas.

According to Professor Rolnick, Nevada's self-defense law is in many ways similar to Florida's.

"Both have the stand your ground provision that says normally you have to retreat first before you use deadly force. In your home you don't, and in the street you don't either in a number of situations," she said during the segment.

Professor Rolnick's scholarship focuses on bridging gaps between civil rights, Critical Race Theory, federal Indian law, and indigenous rights.
