At the William S. Boyd School of Law we are educating ethical and effective lawyers and leaders. We are a young law school – just over 15 years old. And we had the privilege of building this school from the ground up: imagining the ideal, modeling best practices, creating an outstanding curriculum, and assembling our fine faculty. We’ve worked hard to ensure that the ideal we first envisioned has become a reality. Our students are exposed to real-world challenges, professional interactions, and public clinics from the very beginning, and community service is an integral part of their education and experience.


Our center for alternative dispute resolution now ranks among the nation’s top. This is also true for our clinical and legal writing programs. But our proudest achievements are those of our students, who win top awards in competitions, secure judicial clerkships, land jobs at prestigious law firms, and enter the workforce prepared to serve their clients and communities.

Like the greater community of Las Vegas, our success is born from daring vision, hard work, and rapid innovation. We have achieved much in a short time, and foresee endless opportunities for the future.

Come to Boyd and experience these opportunities for yourself. We invite you to add your bright light to ours.
