Only one college of Nevada’s two universities is ranked in the top one hundred colleges across this country. The Boyd School of Law was formed just over ten years ago. Its present law school ranking is 76 out of approximately 200 accredited law schools.
To have a professional school in the Nevada System of Higher Education is absolutely wonderful. It is there because private money built it and supports it.
But for Bill Boyd, the Thomas family and the Mack family, UNLV would not have a law school.
We have the capacity to build world class centers of education. We don’t do so because we don’t care about having them.
