May 21 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The May 21 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Angela Morrison, student Michael Viets, and alumnus Matt Morris '13. 

In her three years as a faculty member at Boyd, Professor Morrison has made important contributions as a collaborative scholar, an effective teacher, and a committed institution-builder. So it is with pride, cheers, and gratitude, the faculty bids adieu to a colleague, friend, and 2005 Boyd alumna as Professor Morrison prepares to join the faculty at Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth, Texas.

Viets, the victor of this year's 17th Annual Clark County Bar Association/Boyd School of Law Moot Court Competition, is a young man who came to Boyd with a unique background and compelling goals. A supporter of Israel and its people, Viets travelled there to volunteer for national service. His experience overseas charted his course and led him to law.

Morris serves in the Office of Governor Brian Sandoval as Legislative Policy Analyst and Externships Coordinator. In this capacity, he is responsible for managing the legislative operations of the Governor's Office during the 78th Legislative Session, coordinating legislative activity with Executive Branch agencies, and serving as a liaison to the State Legislature on behalf of the office.
