Sept. 10 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Sept. 10 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Linda Berger, student Wynn Tashman, and alumna Alissa Neufeld '09.

Professor Berger, Associate Dean for Faculty Development & Research, is one of three co-editors working on a collection of re-imagined Supreme Court opinions that will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2016.

Tashman's zeal for children's rights advocacy has taken many tangible forms here at Boyd, including having served as a Graduate Research Assistant for the Kids' Court School, and president of the Child Advocacy Law Association. Outside of school, he is actively involved in advocacy for LGBT youth.

Neufeld is Associate General Counsel for 1-800 Contacts, Inc., the largest U.S. retailer of contact lenses. In her role, she works on a wide range of legal issues, including corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, supplier relations, business development, commercial agreements, intellectual property, and advertising.
