April 16 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The April 16 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Rachel Anderson, student Andrew Dunning, and alumna Jenny Routheaux '08.

At the law school, Professor Anderson is a dedicated supporter of student events and the faculty advisor to student organizations. At the university level, she is a frequent target for steering committees and strategic initiatives. Across the state of Nevada, she is appreciated as the vice president of the American Civil Liberties Union. And throughout the country (and even the world), she is well known for her work with the National Bar Association.

Dunning serves as a student attorney in Boyd's Juvenile Justice Clinic, providing accused children advocacy and a voice. Through the clinic, he is involved with legislative efforts to protect the rights of minors in court and assists in preventing juvenile offenders from being charged and tried as adults. Dunning has served as an articles editor for the UNLV Gaming Law Journal, legacy historian for Phi Alpha Delta, research assistant to Professor Jean Sternlight, student associate for LexisNexis, Steiger Fellow for the Nevada Attorney General's Office, and judicial extern for the Honorable Philip Pro in United States District Court.

Routheaux is an associate in the Minneapolis office of the international law firm of Dorsey & Whitney LLP. She is a member of Dorsey's Finance and Restructuring Group, where she focuses on borrower and lender representation in commercial lending transactions, including construction, real estate, commercial gaming and leveraged financing. She also assists clients with real estate transactional matters, including leasing and acquisition and sales of real property.
