Professor Sylvia Lazos Provides Commentary on KNPR's State of Nevada

Sylvia Lazos is the Justice Myron Leavitt Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On September 23, during KNPR's State of Nevada segment titled What's On Your Mind?, she and Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Glenn Cook provided commentary about general issues on listeners' minds.

"One of my concerns right now is we need to be having an ongoing conversation about education issues during the interim, not just during legislative session. Legislative session is insane in terms of how many issues we have to deal with seriously in just four or five months, and it's very difficult to be extremely thoughtful when everything is being thrown at you. So we really as a community have to be thinking about these issues during the interim," she said. 

Professor Lazos is a frequent op-ed contributor, and her expertise is sought by print and broadcast media on a wide range of subjects, including higher education, immigration, race relations, government, voting and initiatives.
