Boyd Assistant Dean for External Relations Layke Martin Quoted on San Diego Source Website

Layke Martin, William S. Boyd School of Law assistant dean for external relations, was recently quoted on the San Diego Source website in an article titled “Growth of legal incubator movement on display at conference.”

Martin attended the conference on “Enhancing Social Justice Through the Development of Incubators and Residency Programs” at the California Western School of Law Feb. 27-28 in San Diego.

The goal of the conference was for individuals from institutions already overseeing incubators to share their experiences and lessons, while encouraging others to launch new ones.

Regarding Martin, the article reads, “the conference showed her that incubators can not only train lawyers to provide affordable legal services, but also be a place where law graduates test out new or niche practice areas.”

Speaking highly about the conference, Martin said, “There were so many people doing exactly what we want to do and who were willing to share their experience, their information, their tools and their budgets — all the stuff you need to get one of these up and running. That was tremendously helpful.”
