Feb. 5 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Feb. 5 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Lydia Nussbaum, student Kerry Kleiman, and alumna Assly Sayyar '04.

Professor Nussbaum is the associate director of the Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution and is the director of the Strasser Mediation Clinic. Part of her work explores how the popular and familiar institution of mediation may be experiencing an important transformation. Her forthcoming article, tentatively titled "Mediation Creep: Expanding State Regulation of Private Disputes," is an important conversation starter.

Kleiman is the editor-in-chief of the UNLV Gaming Law Journal and won both IAGA's 2015 Shannon Bybee Scholarship Award and the 2014 Anthony Cabot Award for Best Student Note for her article on conflicting international anti-money laundering protocols for casinos. As a member of the Society of Advocates, she was named second best oralist at Fordham University School of Law's 2014 Kaufman Memorial Securities Law Moot Court Competition.

After more than seven years of civil litigation and transactional practice in small- and medium-size firms in the Southern Nevada area, Sayyar opened her own solo practice in the northern county of San Diego in May 2012, with a satellite office in Las Vegas. She continues to offer her skills as a trial attorney, civil practitioner, and business and corporate transactional attorney in both states.
