Professor Sylvia Lazos Appears on Jim Rogers' Nevada

Sylvia Lazos is the Justice Myron Leavitt Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On March 14, she was featured on KSNV News 3's program Jim Rogers' Nevada

"I think it's still the case that we need to make sure that every legislator knows that the Nevada Constitution mandates that it's their constitutional duty, it's the duty and honor as a legislator, to fund a suitable education for every Nevada child. And right now, I don't think that we're quite there. We're making progress, but we haven't gotten there yet," she said during the interview.

Professor Lazos is a frequent op-ed contributor, and her expertise is sought by print and broadcast media on a wide range of subjects, including higher education, immigration, race relations, government, voting and initiatives.
