April 30 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The April 30 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Thomas Main, student Erica Bobak, and alumna Kendra Kisling '13.

Professor Main is about to complete his two-year term as the associate dean for Faculty Development and Research. He recently returned from a trip to Jacksonville, Fla., where he presented a paper titled "Why Scholarship Matters." Also, he was recently recognized by the student body as their choice for this year's Faculty of the Year.

Last November, Bobak began offering a well-received course in intellectual property considerations for budding designers at downtown's Stitch Factory, and continues to teach there. She is currently writing two articles regarding IP law and the fashion industry, and makes an effort to attend national fashion law symposiums to get both West and East Coast perspectives of the current legal landscape in fashion.

Kisling is an associate in the Phoenix office of Perkins Coie LLP, a multinational law firm. She is in the business litigation practice, where she represents business clients, from Fortune 100 companies to local developers and contractors. She also maintains an active pro bono practice, assisting indigent clients in immigration and bankruptcy proceedings.
