Dean Dan Hamilton Writes Column for Nevada Lawyer

Dan Hamilton is the Dean and Richard J. Morgan Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

For the August 2013 issue of Nevada Lawyer, the State Bar of Nevada's magazine, Hamilton wrote the Dean's Column. In it, he talks about the current challenges facing legal education, Boyd's success over the past 15 years, and what it will take to get even better moving forward.

"We have a record of making great faculty hires and we need to make more. We recruit great students and we need to recruit more... in an increasingly competitive environment. Our students work with our professional staff and faculty and alumni to find jobs, and we need to make sure Boyd graduates keep getting what they come to law school for: good jobs and satisfying legal careers," he wrote in the column.
