Oct. 9 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Oct. 9 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Professor Ian Bartrum, student Christopher Sauser, and alumna Sonya Miller '13.

Professor Bartrum is one of Boyd's experts on the Constitution. He's currently working on a book with the tentative title, The Contested Constitution. The book develops the concept that when people refer to the "Constitution" they are not usually talking about a document, but rather about a particular social practice.

Chris' appreciation and respect for study of the rule of law developed during his 25-year tenure with the United States Air Force as a military police officer. His service has taken him around the country and around the globe.

Miller is a lecturer and the director of the Federal Tax Clinic at the University of South Dakota School of Law. Following graduation at Boyd, Sonya earned an LL.M. in Taxation at Villanova University. She also clerked for the Honorable Mary S. Brennan, J.T.C., in the New Jersey Tax Court.
