The Nevada Law Journal held their virtual end of year dinner last week, and I want to thank Editor-In-Chief Anna Guida and the student editors at the NLJ for all their excellent work. I also want to congratulate Greg Cloward who was named the winner of the Justice Elissa Cadish Award for best student note for his piece “A (Cruel and) Unusual Decision: Questions Raised for the Fifth Circuit Moving Forward from Gibson v. Collier.” Justice Cadish is a great friend of the law school and this award is a highlight of the year.

Congratulations as well to the other first-rate student notes selected for publication in the NLJ:
John McCormick-Huhn: Why Led Zeppelin Needed Laches to Defend Its Iconic “Stairway to Heaven”: Cognitive Aging’s Implications for Copyright Infringement Claims

Tayler Bingham: Giving Qualified Immunity Teeth: A Congressional Approach to Fixing Qualified Immunity

Edward (Sebastian) Cate-Cribari: Convenience or Confidentiality: Nevada’s Digital Data Laws in the Age of Always Listening Devices

Be well,

Dan
