Dean Dan Hamilton Featured in Las Vegas Review-Journal

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

On Nov. 9, he was featured in the Las Vegas Review-Journal profile Nevadan at Work: Lawyer made decision to teach.

"Boyd is a great success story that is known in legal academia. What Dick Morgan, John White and Nancy Rapoport helped build here is one of the top public law schools in the country in a span of 15 years. That is very impressive. What (they) did was recruit a great faculty and that is what has just propelled the school. When you have that great faculty you can draw great students, you have great alumni and it builds on itself," he said in the story.

Dean Hamilton researches and writes primarily on American property ideology and the legal and constitutional issues raised by the Civil War. He has written numerous articles and reviews on American legal history.
