Feb. 7 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Feb. 7 edition of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Terrill Pollman, student Katherine Frank, and alumna Sophia Salas '07.

A founding faculty member of Boyd, Professor Pollman currently teaches for the law school's legal writing program, which is one of the most highly regarded programs in the country. Her instruction has compelled countless students to become effective advocates and leaders.

After graduating with a B.A. in Psychology with honors from Temple University, Frank is now a first-year law student at Boyd. While living in Philadelphia, she volunteered at a clinic that provides mental health counseling for children facing anxieties that arise from living in an urban environment — all while running for Temple’s track and field/cross country team.

An alumna of both UNLV and Boyd, Salas manages her family recycling business, RenuOil of America, Inc. Under her oversight, the company now services more than 20 Las Vegas hotel and casinos and more than 300 local restaurants. RenuOil was recently recognized as the 2013 Recycling Company of the Year, via the Pinecone GreenUP award.
