Dec. 5 Boyd Briefs Now Avilable

The Dec. 5 edition of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Ruben Garcia, students Josh and Crislove Igeleke, and alumna Heather Procter '03.

Professor Garcia is considered one of the most important and relevant leaders in the field of labor and employment law. He currently serves on the board of the ACLU of Nevada, and will soon become the co-president of the national Society of American Law Teachers. As one of Boyd's most important institution-builders, Professor Garcia has expertly chaired a variety of key faculty committees.

This year, the Igeleke siblings had the opportunity to share a single semester of law school at Boyd. While Josh will soon graduate with J.D. and MBA degrees, Crislove finds herself in throes of her first year. Both have been motivated by the support and advice of their parents, who relocated to Las Vegas from their native Nigeria in 1982.

For the last nine years, Procter has served as a deputy and senior deputy at the Nevada Attorney General's Office in Carson City. She continues to work on the Boyd Alumni Chapter Board, while also creating and editing the Boyd Alumni News. Procter was recently named the 2013 William S. Boyd School of Law Alumna of the Year.
