From Dean Dan - March 8, 2019
The Melanie Kushnir Access to Justice Fellowship was created by the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada in honor of Melanie Kushnir, who dedicated her life to inspiring pro bono attorneys, law students, bar leaders, the judiciary, and the community, to donate their time, knowledge, and experience to those in need. The Kushnir Fellowship recognizes a law student who has demonstrated exceptional commitment to public interest law, and who will carry on Melanie’s legacy of service.

Before you joined us, what Boyd insight did you get from your sister Katlyn (Boyd '16)?
In terms of observations, I definitely saw just how hard law school is, and how much work it would take to be successful. In terms of advice, she told me to take advantage of every opportunity to meet and talk with my professors. She also told me to find a solid study group so that I had people to both bounce ideas off of, and act as a support group when one of us had the inevitable “I’m in over my head” panic attack.
