Student Life

Throughout the Boyd School of Law’s history, its students have welcomed the opportunity to build a special sort of community, one which values cooperation, civility, mutual respect, and diversity, and in which all members seek to maximize the potential of themselves and one another.  The BSL student body comprises individuals of wide-ranging interests, backgrounds, and life experiences.  Working collaboratively, these individuals define and vitalize the student organizations and activities of the law school, as well as the traditions and culture surrounding them.

In cooperation with the Associate Dean's office, students have the opportunity to develop any number of other organizations and activities that have relevance to the law school and enrich the experience of students.

"The welcoming and supportive community set the William S. Boyd School of Law apart from other schools for me. As a California native, I had my fair share of schools to choose from. However, none showed the personal attention and dedication to my individual academic and professional success that Boyd did. That enthusiasm rang true during my very first visit to the school and continues to hold strong today.

From one-on-one interactions with judges and justices, to practical casework with active attorneys, the school puts its all into developing well-rounded students. I have full faith and confidence that the impactful education and unique practical experiences will shape me into a distinctive legal professional for the industry here and beyond Nevada's borders. Thank you, UNLV Law!"
