April 24 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The April 24 edition of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Mary Berkheiser, student AJ Hames, and alumna Sarah Bassett '06.

Professor Berkheiser is a member of Boyd's founding faculty, and is responsible for developing the school's high-ranking legal clinics. Today, she continues to direct the Juvenile Justice Clinic, where students represent children who have been charged with juvenile delinquency proceedings.

While at Boyd, Hames has strongly performed in his doctrinal, writing, and skills courses, earning a number of CALI (Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction) awards. He currently works as the editor of the Nevada Law Journal, in addition to serving as a member of the Society of Advocates, the Public Interest Law Association, and the J. Reuben Clark Law Society.

Bassett is an associate with the Las Vegas office of Cotton, Driggs, Walch, Holley, Woloson & Thompson, where she practices in the area of commercial litigation. She also remains committed to community service by working as a pro bono attorney for the Children's Attorneys Project for the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada.
