Jan. 28 Boyd Briefs Now Available

The Jan. 28 issue of Boyd Briefs is now available.

This week's edition features Adjunct Professor Howard Siegel, student Mariah Northington, and alumnus Eric Gannon '08.

Professor Siegel is one of New York's "Super Lawyers" and until very recently senior partner in Pryor Cashman LLP's Entertainment Group in New York. He teaches The Law & Business of the Music Industry as part of Boyd's intellectual property curriculum.

Northington grew up in Lee Vining, Calif., a small town of 222. Coming to Boyd was the best choice she made, adding she has benefited from making lifelong friends and great professional relationships.

Gannon works in Austin, Texas as an analyst for FirstCare Health Plans, an insurer in Texas and New Mexico. He creates value by designing provider contract mechanisms to pursue cost efficiencies and quality incentives -- blending algorithm/data science and financial modeling to optimize network strength and accessibility.
