Law school gets more selective
By Stephanie Tavares

When it was established in 1998, UNLV’s Boyd School of Law was fast out of the gate. It earned American Bar Association accreditation in four years — quicker than any other law school — and was ranked among the top 100 law schools in the country two years later. The jockey, trainer and owner during those early years was Dick Morgan, the law school’s charismatic founding dean and a one-man force of nature.

Now, with Morgan retired, Boyd School of Law is setting long-term goals and trying to define its areas of niche expertise, even as the school is being buffeted by the recession. If there is a silver lining to the school’s stalled growth because of budget shortcomings, it is that a growing number of wannabe lawyers are sending their applications to Boyd, allowing the young school to become more selective — and enhancing its reputation.
