Mar. 5 Boyd Briefs Now Available

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

This week's edition features Professor Jennifer Roberts, student Dawn Nielsen, and alumna Maryann Furman '06.

Professor Roberts, formerly of Lionel Sawyer and now a partner at Duane Morris, is a prominent gaming law expert who has taught as an adjunct faculty member at the law school for many years. The students appreciate that she knows how to integrate her vast experience into effective teaching.

Nielsen unashamedly turned 50 this year. How exactly does she intend to commemorate this milestone? She's going to run 50 miles. While that may sound horrifying to some of our readers, it's right in Dawn's wheelhouse, and, predictably, she has channeled this determination into her legal education.

Furman is the owner of her own law firm, The Nurse Lawyer, P.A. Her practice focuses solely on personal injury litigation and trial work where she lives in New Port Rickey, Fla. She has tried more than 50 jury trials and achieved many multi-million dollar verdicts. She was rated one of Super Lawyers Rising Stars for the years 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
