Jeffrey Stempel is the Doris S. and Theodore B. Lee Professor of Law at the Boyd School of Law. Thomas Main is Associate Dean for Faculty Development and Research and a William S. Boyd Professor of Law at UNLV.

Together, they are helping organize a symposium co-sponsored by the Boyd School of Law and the Northeastern University School of Law. The symposium, titled Through a Glass Starkly: Civil Procedure Reassessed, will take place April 11 and 12 at Northeastern University in Boston, Mass.

Professors Stempel and Main will present papers at the symposium. All papers presented will be printed in the Nevada Law Journal, a journal of legal scholarship dedicated to analyzing the law and policy implications of significant case law, legislation, administrative regulations and important legal events.

Professor Stempel has numerous publications to his credit, including books, treatise chapters and supplements, and law review articles. He is a 1981 graduate of Yale Law School, where he was an editor of the Yale Law Journal and co-founder of the Yale Law and Policy Review.

Professor Main is a leading figure in the field of civil procedure. Most of his scholarship explores the history of procedure, with current projects focused on judicial efficiency initiatives in the 1950s-1970s.
