May 14 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The May 14 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Nancy Rapoport, student Alexandria Mendonca, and alumnus Nicholas Vaskov '02.

Professor Rapoport has thrice been a dean, including service as Boyd's interim dean in 2012-2013. She presently serves as Senior Advisor to the President of UNLV. She is one of the most productive members of the Boyd faculty. Her work has been cited more than 700 times in law reviews and journals; courts, too, follow her work -- frequently citing her books and articles as persuasive authority.

After graduating from Boyd, Mendonca will attend Oregon State University to pursue a post-baccalaureate degree in biochemistry, and eventually a Ph.D. She plans to take the patent bar, with her sights set on teaching law or science down the road.

Vaskov serves as System Counsel and Director of Real Estate Planning for the Nevada System of Higher Education. His practice focuses on real estate transactions and finance, construction, and land use -- but on any day can span almost any aspect of higher education law and policy.
