Boyd School of Law Hosts Lutie A. Lytle Black Women Law Faculty Writing Workshop

The Boyd School of Law yesterday finished hosting the seventh annual Lutie A. Lytle Black Women Law Faculty Writing Workshop.

The writing workshop is named in honor of the legacy of achievements of black women in legal academia that began with Lutie A. Lytle. The main goal of the workshop is to foster the scholarly progress of black women law faculty and their sustainability in the academy.

The workshop kicked off June 27 with a reception featuring a preview of the exhibit "Purposeful Spaces, Living History: African Americans, Civil Rights, and Law in Nevada." Reception attendees also viewed the VegasPBS film "Early African-American Legal Community."

Associate Professor of Law Rachel J. Anderson spearheaded the workshop.
