The ACLU of Nevada, in cooperation with the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, is proud to announce the selection of Judy Cox as its first-ever Beverly Rogers Fellow, beginning in September 2008.

The fellowship, created with the generous support of Las Vegans Jim and Beverly Rogers, provides a recent Boyd Law School graduate committed to a public interest career the opportunity to work in-depth on an array of civil liberties issues.  The fellow will receive training and experience in both litigation and the myriad other forms of advocacy peformed by the Nevada ACLU.

A selection committee comprised of ACLU of Nevada staff and Boyd Law School Administrators and Faculty reviewed a pool of talented applicants and conducted panel interviews before announcing their choice of Judy Cox.  She is a third year student at the Boyd School, graduating in May of 2008.  During her time there, Judy has served as Nevada Law Editor of the Nevada Law Journal, President of SAGE (Sexual and Gender Equality), and as a student attorney in the Thomas & Mack Legal Clinic.

 The ACLU of Nevada is thrilled to welcome Judy as the first Beverly Rogers Fellow.  Her presence will significantly enhance the organization's mission statewide. 

 Many thanks to Jim and Beverly Rogers for their exceedingly generous support of the creation of the fellowship.  Their committment is a huge step forward for the cause of civil liberties and civil rights in Nevada.
