Student Life

Throughout the UNLV 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. View the current listing of BSL student organizations and officers.

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.

"Being part of Boyd Nation means being part of a legal community (or family) that you can always count on. The William S. Boyd School of Law has it all. From incredible professors, to resourceful administration members, to incredible future colleagues. I started my journey at Boyd two years ago, at twenty-years-old, afraid of what is to come. Although I still have fears, being part of this community makes law school a simpler experience.

Law school is something I always saw as part of my plan but I am so grateful I chose Boyd for my law school journey. From all the incredible opportunities I have gotten to experience, to all the incredible people I have met. I am forever grateful.

I am not sure where life will take me once I finish law school, but I will always remember my time at Boyd and it will hold a special place in my heart. I am forever thankful for this law school and the countless, wonderful memories. I hope everyone gets a chance to make as many wonderful memories at Boyd as I have!"
