April 17 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The April 17 edition of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Leslie Griffin, student Alissa Cooley, and alumna Margo Chernysheva '09.

For decades, Professor Griffin has been deeply engaged in the relationship between law and religion. As one of Boyd's most respected scholars, she is in very high demand. This semester, she is teaching as a visiting professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Law.

Cooley has spent the past four years as both a part-time law student and full-time worker. While at Boyd, she's worked as a student attorney in the Immigration Law Clinic, and has also participated in the school's Street Law and Partners in Pro Bono programs.

Chernysheva was the first in her 2009 graduating class to be offered a partnership in a law firm that was not owned by a family member. She currently works at her own firm, MC Law Group, where she concentrates on business and investment immigration visas.
