Members of Boyd Community Featured in COMMUNIQUÉ

Several members of the William S. Boyd School of Law community are highlighted in the December issue of COMMUNIQUÉ, the Clark County Bar Association's magazine. 

In an article titled Local Legal Community Supports Boyd Law School's Annual Client Counseling Competition, Professor Jean Sternlight and alumna Kelly Stout '10 are quoted. Professor Sternlight notes, "That the second place team, Cameron and Brian, is eligible to represent Boyd at the ABA Regional Competition that will take place in mid-February at Santa Clara University. The first place team will represent Boyd at the regional in spring 2015." In the article, Stout says, "I want to extend a huge thank you to all of the people who gave up part of their weekend and volunteered as clients and judges..."

Boyd alumna Nedda Ghandi '08 is featured in the News & Notes section of the December issue. She is pictured with Senior U.S. District Court Judge Lloyd D. George after a presentation she gave during the Downtown Cultural Series.

Boyd alumna Eunice Beattie '06 is spotlighted as the Volunteer of the Month. "While pro bono service has always been an interest, she credits her work with Gordon Silver for allowing her the freedom to provide service to the community. Eunice has provided pro bono representation to clients in a number of areas including divorce, consumer fraud and landlord-tenant matters as well as advocating on behalf of abused and neglected children through the Children's Attorneys Project," the article reads.
