Sept. 24 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Sept. 24 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Eric Franklin, student Steven (JT) Washington, and alumna Melissa Waite '07.

Professor Franklin developed and directs the Boyd School of Law's clinic for nonprofits, small business, and community-based groups. His background in complex and varied business transactions is matched by his enthusiasm for encouraging pro bono work in the transactional lawyer's world.

In pursuit of his ultimate objective, Washington studied political science at UNLV, earning his B.A. magna cum laude in 2012. At Boyd, he has served as Student Bar Association treasurer and is an active member of the Black Law Students Association and the Public Interest Law Association.

Waite recently became a shareholder at one of the oldest law firms in Las Vegas, Jolley Urga Woodbury & Little. Her practice focuses primarily on business and real estate transactions. A significant part of her practice also is devoted to business and privilege licensing, including liquor, gaming, and medical marijuana establishment licensing.
