Jan. 31 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Jan. 31 edition of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Lydia Nussbaum, students Oscar Peralta and Jose Martin, and alumna Brandi Jensen '01.

One of Boyd’s newest faculty members, Professor Nussbaum, currently serves as the Director of the Strasser Mediation Clinic and as Associate Director of the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution. Her scholarship has added to the intellectual richness of both the community and Boyd’s faculty.

After relocating from his native Costa Rica at age 15, Peralta is now a third-year student at Boyd. Today, he studies alongside his former mentor and Boyd second-year student Jose Martin, who taught Peralta as an undergraduate adjunct professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. Peralta is considering a future career in public service, while Martin aspires to practice immigration law.

Jensen currently works as the City Attorney for the City of Fernley, where she handles all criminal prosecution, employment law, and contracting that ranges from small projects to million-dollar roadways. In addition to her busy legal career, Jensen competes in rodeo competitions, which has led her to win the All-Around Cowgirl title twice in the last few years.
