April 23 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The April 23 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Jeffrey Stempel, student Haley Lewis, and alumna Katie Fellows '06.

Students and colleagues benefit from Professor Stempel's brilliant intellect, sharp wit, and creative genius. But his audiences extend well beyond the walls of Boyd. For example, Professor Stempel is an influential voice in the American Law Institute, a prominent organization of judges, lawyers and academics dedicated to improving law.

An encounter during this year's Alternative Spring Break helped Lewis land a summer internship in Carson City with the Office of the Nevada Attorney, Bureau of Litigation - Appellate Division. During law school, she has been active in Boyd's chapter of Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternity, serving this year as the chapter's vice-justice.  Last summer, she was an extern with United States Magistrate Judge Valerie Cooke. 

Fellows serves as the vice president and general counsel for the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. Committed to the community, she is the current chairman of the board for the American Red Cross, Southern Nevada Chapter; a graduate of Leadership Las Vegas class of 2008; a member of the Yale Alumni Schools Committee; and most recently, a member of the Las Vegas Founding 75 dedicated to bringing an NHL team to Las Vegas.
