Dean Dan Hamilton and several Boyd School of Law alumni are featured in the March issue of Nevada Lawyer, the State Bar of Nevada's monthly publication.

Dean Dan Hamilton authored the Dean's Column: Boyd and Bankruptcy Law. "We are always looking for ways to expand our offerings and strengthen our already close connections to the bench and bar. I am delighted that U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judges Mike Nakagawa and Gregg Zive are teaching courses and seminars at Boyd on basic bankruptcy and bankruptcy litigation. Our students have served these and other bankruptcy judges as clerks and externs and, we are told, continually do us proud," Dean Hamilton wrote in the article.

Boyd alumnus Adam Bowler '03 co-authored What Every Attorney Needs to Know About Bankruptcy. "A great starting point in a search for bankruptcy information is the Nevada Bankruptcy Court’s website: www.nvb.uscourts.gov. The website includes copies of the Local Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (which supplement the Bankruptcy Code and the national Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure), local forms, judicial procedures and court calendars," the article reads.

Boyd alumnus Terry Johnson '11 was featured in the Pro Bono Spotlight: ONE Focus article. "Terry Johnson works full time for the State of Nevada as a member of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, and very regularly does pro bono work in the form of taking cases and participating in outreach clinics. Johnson was Nevada Legal Services’ southern Nevada 2013 Volunteer Attorney of the Year," the article reads.

Boyd alumna Kendelee Works '05 wrote Young Lawyers: Things Every Young Lawyer Should Know About Bankruptcy. "Regardless of the area of law in which you practice, you will inevitably cross paths with an issue that touches upon the ever-elusive Bankruptcy Code," she wrote.

Several Boyd alumni are featured in the Pro Bono Honor Roll. The Honor Roll featured attorneys who accepted pro bono cases in December 2013 through the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, Washoe Legal Services, Nevada Legal Services, and Volunteer Attorneys of Rural Nevada.
