Nov. 21 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Nov. 21 edition of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Elizabeth MacDowell, student Casey Stiteler, and alumnus Terry Johnson '11.

Professor MacDowell serves as the director of the Family Justice Clinic at the Boyd School of Law. She continues to publish award-winning reasearch that focuses on issues including matters of race, class, gender, domestic violence, access to justice, and the impact of criminalization on low-income families.

After overcoming a brain tumor, Stiteler's resilience compelled him to create Casey's Project Ltd., which works with local companies to provide toys and entertainment equipment to pediatric wards in Reno and Carson City. In addition to performing strongly academically, he currently works as an Academic Success Program student mentor.

In 2012, Johnson became the first Boyd graduate to serve on the three-person Nevada Gaming Control Board, which licenses and regulates the gaming industry. He also accepts pro bono cases from the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada and Nevada Legal Services. The latter recently honored Johnson with its Pro Bono Attorney of the Year award.
