Kristopher Kalkowski is a third-year law student at the William S. Boyd School of Law, UNLV, and a student-attorney with the law school’s Investor Protection Clinic. He will graduate from Boyd in May 2018.
Kris grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, and in 2011 he moved to Reno, Nevada, for four years to attend the University of Nevada, Reno—where he graduated in 2015 with a major in Criminal Justice and a minor in Chemistry. Outside the classroom, he played lacrosse for the University’s club team, and he worked for the law firm of Steven J. Klearman & Associates throughout his undergraduate studies. His work at that law firm sparked his interest to be an attorney, which led him back home to Las Vegas after graduation so that he could attend Boyd’s law school.
Here at Boyd, he serves as the Executive Editor of the school’s Nevada Law Journal. He also is a member of the school’s Society of Advocates, Moot Court team.
After law school, Kris will take the Nevada bar exam in July 2018. Then, in September 2018, he will begin a two-year judicial clerkship in the Federal District Court for the District of Nevada.
