March 26 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The March 26 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Mary LaFrance, student Stephanie Getler, and alumnus Rob Beyer '01.

An article by Professor LaFrance was judged one of the best law review articles related to intellectual property law published within the last year, and it will be included in the 2015 anthology of the Intellectual Property Law Review. As further indication of her renown, appreciate that this is the third time that her work has been selected for this distinction.

Among the many student organizations that keep student life here at Boyd vibrant and engaging is our chapter of Phi Alpha Delta (PAD), the national law fraternity established over a century ago. Our PAD chapter organizes and delivers a variety of intellectual, service, and social activities, often working collaboratively with other student groups. Leading PAD's efforts this year is its Justice, i.e., its president/CEO/leader of the pack, second-year student Getler.

Beyer was a member of the charter class at Boyd, graduating magna cum laude. He currently serves as a director of debt and equity finance at Mission Capital Advisors, a real estate capital raising firm in New York City. Beyer also serves as the executive vice president, secretary and general counsel of The Siegel Group, a real estate investment and management company in Las Vegas.
