Jan. 9 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Jan. 9 edition of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Ian Bartrum, student Virgilio "Bing" Longakit, and alumna Siria L. Gutiérrez '10.

Since arriving at Boyd in 2011, Professor Bartrum has become one of the law school's most prolific young scholars. He is currently developing a national reputation for his highly regarded work that centers on theories of constitutional interpretation.

After working on his family farm and attending university in the Philippines, Longakit is now a second-year, part-time evening student at Boyd. During the day, he oversees the Unclaimed Property Division of the Nevada State Treasurer's Office where he works as a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Public Manager.

Gutiérrez currently works as an associate at the Las Vegas firm of Phillips, Spallas and Angstadt where she focuses in the area of tort litigation defense, specializing in premises liability. She is also a founding and current member of La Voz's award-winning mentorship program Huellas ("Footprints"), which is designed to encourage minority students to enter the legal profession. Gutiérrez will serve as the President of the Las Vegas Latino Bar Association in 2014.
