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.

"Boyd School of Law provides a top-notch legal education. With two stellar legal journals, an award-winning moot court team, and a variety of student groups, Boyd has become a formidable law school in just twenty years.

Yet Boyd's most important trait is its student body. Boyd is more than just a law school, it is a thriving community of law students, professors, practitioners, judges, and other supporters who want to see Boyd School of Law, and its students, succeed. This collaboration manifests itself in the camaraderie that the student body has with each other and with the legal community at large.  As such, Boyd prepares its students to become contributing members to the Nevada legal community."
