Feb. 19 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Feb. 19 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Francine Lipman, students Stephen Davis and Sean Young, and alumna Kara B. Hendricks '01.

Professor Lipman's scholarship integrates not only the practice and the theory of tax and tax justice, but also the context. Indeed, her scholarly camera has many lenses: Lipman offers detailed close-ups of the minutiae of the tax code, yet also manages to contextualize the objects of her focus within a wider social context. A deep intellectual commitment to justice and fairness elegantly complements her vast knowledge of and unparalleled enthusiasm for tax.

Davis and Young earlier this month took first place honors in the ABA Region 12 Client Counseling Competition held at the University of Oregon School of Law. They went up against students from law schools in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Utah and Wyoming. The team is now moving forward in preparation to represent Boyd at the ABA National Client Counseling Competition in Durham, N.C. March 13-14.  

Hendricks is a shareholder with the Las Vegas office of the international law firm of Greenberg Traurig, LLP. She has a broad range of experience litigating a variety of business matters. Additionally, she counsels clients regarding statutory and administrative issues, including insurance and charter school requisites.
