Nov. 8 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Nov. 8 edition of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Bret Birdsong, student Melissa Corral, and alumna Kristina Holmstrom '04.

Since joining the Boyd School of Law in 2000, Professor Birdsong has served as a role model for countless students. This year, Boyd was proud to announce that Professor Birdsong would take his expertise in areas of federal land and resources to Washington D.C. to work as the Deputy Solicitor for Land Resources for the U.S. Department of the Interior.  

As a part-time evening student at Boyd, Corral has faced many moments of frustration while juggling law school and a full-time job. Propelled by opportunities for personal and professional growth, she is on track to graduate next May with a number of accomplishments under her belt. Corral currently is active in SBA as a 4L part-time representative and represents clients in the law school’s Immigration Clinic.

After graduating from Boyd in 2004, Holmstrom moved to Phoenix to begin her legal career at Meyer Hendricks and Bivens, a boutique commercial litigation firm. She currently works as a litigation partner at Lewis Roca Rothgerber, where she focuses on all aspects of insurance litigation, including ERISA and coverage work.
