Dean Dan Hamilton Featured in David Magazine

Dan Hamilton is the Dean and Richard J. Morgan Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Dean Hamilton is featured in the October issue of David Magazine in an article titled "Las Vegas Law."

The article reads, "Although he has been drinking from the proverbial firehose since arriving, Hamilton embraces the often frenzied pace he maintains as Boyd dean. 'The challenge is you need to be out in the community, meeting with law firms, alumni, potential employers, friends,' he says. 'And you need to be working inside the building to help think about curriculum and things like enrollment management. Every day I try to do both.'"

Dean Hamilton researches and writes primarily on American property ideology and the legal and constitutional issues raised by the Civil War. He has written numerous articles and reviews on American legal history.
