Co-Curricular Activities

Nevada Law Journal
The faculty and students have worked together to develop the Nevada Law Journal, a publication devoted to scholarly research on subjects of interest to the legal community at large and on subjects of particular interest to practicing lawyers in Nevada. Academic credit is awarded for participation in Law Journal (one credit per semester for staff members, and two credits for editorial board members per semester of editorial board service). There is considerable reward in being selected for the Law Journal. Participation in Law Journal provides important opportunities to develop research, writing, critical thinking, and other important lawyering skills. The experience benefits attorneys throughout their careers and is considered a valuable credential.

William S. Boyd School of Law Society of Advocates
The William S. Boyd School of Law Society of Advocates is the school's appellate and trial forensic program, a co-curricular student advocacy activity. The Society consists of an Executive Board of 3-5 students and 16-20 team members who participate in interscholastic competitions. Each academic year, teams take part in a variety of competitions, such as mock trial, client counseling, negotiation, mediation, and alternative dispute resolution advocacy, as well as traditional appellate advocacy.

Students are selected to be members of the Society of Advocates based on their performance in the Lawyering Process II moot court exercise, which includes a written brief, oral argument before the Lawyering Process faculty, and oral argument before attorneys and judges from Clark County.

Students who successfully participate in competitions on behalf of the Society will receive two credits based on evaluation of their oral and written work in connection with the Society.
