March 13 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The March 13 edition of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Sylvia Lazos, student Laura Guidry, and alumnus Michael Higdon '01.

Professor Lazos is a frequent commenter and collaborator on a wide range of subjects, including higher education, immigration, race relations, and election law. Much of her scholarship offers a cross-disciplinary perspective on contemporary questions of constitutional law.

Guidry recently chaired the Public Interest Law Association (PILA) Auction on Feb. 16 in the Cabaret Jazz Club at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts. In addition to her contributions to PILA, Guidry serves as the Secretary of the Federalist Society and participates in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program administered by Boyd's Financial Law Society.

Higdon currently works as an Associate Professor and Director of Legal Writing at the University of Tennessee College of Law. As part of Boyd's charter class, he graduated summa cum laude and valedictorian, in addition to serving as the first Editor-in-Chief of the Nevada Law Journal.
