April 9 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The April 9 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor David Wall, student Gil Kahn, and alumna Linda Marie Norcross '04.

Formerly a litigator, public defender, district attorney, and trial judge, Professor David Wall, who recently joined JAMS as a mediator and arbitrator, is an adjunct who brings a wealth of experience into our classrooms. As a litigator, he worked at -- and was a partner in -- prominent Nevada law firms. As a public defender, he was a member of the Capital Murder Defense team. As a district attorney, he prosecuted primarily homicide and other high-profile cases. And as a trial judge he consistently received the highest ratings.

Kahn is a member of Society of Advocates, participating last month in the National Labor & Employment Law Moot Court Competition in New York City and recently was named Lead Articles Editor for the Nevada Law Journal. He is an extern for United States District Court Judge James Mahan and a Research Fellow for Professor Sara Gordon, reviewing and recommending changes to Alaska statutes governing the treatment of Alaskans with mental illness.

Norcross is a shareholder with the Las Vegas office of Howard & Howard Attorneys PLLC, as well as the firm's Trademark Practice Group Leader. Norcross' practice focuses on protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights, with primary emphasis on trademarks. Additionally, she assists the firm's Corporate Group with the due diligence process for mergers and acquisitions.
