Dean Dan Hamilton Featured on News 3's Jim Rogers' Nevada - Part 4

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

On Nov. 14, he was featured on News 3's Jim Rogers' Nevada program.

"The success of a law school really rises and falls on its faculty. That is an area where the law school has, since it opened its doors 15 years ago, been very aggressive and smart about the people it's hired. We have one of the most distinguished faculties in the region and we have a nationally recognized faculty in areas like constitutional law, insurance law, health law, intellectual property law. We're very proud of them. They produce scholarship that is first-rate and that is cited by courts here and is cited by people around the country," he said during the interview.

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.
