Boyd Dean Dan Hamilton and Student Shane Jackson Interviewed by Vegas Seven

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

Dean Hamilton and student Shane Jackson recently spoke with Vegas Seven magazine for a Dec. 10 article titled “Now’s the Time to Break into Law: Despite a daunting post-graduate job market, now is the ideal time to give law school a shot—if you’re serious.”

The article, which touches on the favorable conditions that make attending law school now so ideal, includes the theory that the “trend of fewer applicants and more schools is advantageous to prospective students.”

“This is the best time to apply and go to law school in a generation,” Dean Hamilton said in the article. “The competition is fierce, and the ability to negotiate tuition is widespread.”

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.
