Professor Bret Birdsong Featured on KNPR's State of Nevada

Bret Birdsong is a Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On July 16, he was featured on KNPR's State of Nevada segment Professor Birdsong Goes to Washington.

Professor Birdsong has been appointed by the Obama administration to serve as deputy solicitor for land resources at the U.S. Department of Interior in Washington, D.C.

"This is what I've always been hoping to do. This is an area of passionate interest for me. When an opportunity arises to go to Washington and make a real difference in the thing you've spent your life studying and working on, it's really something that's too good to pass up," he said during the interview.

Professor Birdsong's research focuses on federal land and resources management.
