Oct. 15 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Oct. 15 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Rebecca Nathanson, student Mackenzie Warren, and alumnus Christopher Hicks '01. 

Professor Nathanson directs both the Kids' Court School and the education advocacy clinic in the Thomas & Mack Legal Clinic. The most important thing she's working on now is the expansion of the Kids' Court School, a program she established at Boyd 12 years ago. More than 1,000 children have participated in the program that educates child witnesses about the judicial process.

Warren, the youngest main news anchor in Las Vegas local television history, traveled a unique road to this distinction. As a journalist and now in her second year at Boyd, Warren has embraced the opportunity to channel her passion for discovery, storytelling, and advocacy.  

As a fifth generation Nevadan, Hicks is proud to be a member of the inaugural graduating class of Nevada's first accredited law school. In 2014, he was elected Washoe County District Attorney and serves as the chief law enforcement officer for the county and the attorney for all of the county's departments and commissioners.
