A little over a decade ago, a new law school in Las Vegas turned on the lights for the first time, and ignited something powerful. In record time, the William S. Boyd School of Law received ABA accreditation and became a nationally esteemed law school, winning scores of accolades.

Our center for alternative dispute resolution now ranks among the nation’s top. This is also true for our clinical and legal writing programs. But our proudest achievements are those of our students, who win top awards in competitions, secure judicial clerkships, land jobs at prestigious law firms, and enter the workforce prepared to serve their clients and communities.

Like the greater community of Las Vegas, our success is born from daring vision, hard work, and rapid innovation. We have achieved much in a short time, and foresee endless opportunities for the future.

Come to Boyd and experience these opportunities for yourself. We invite you to add your bright light to ours.
