New Jersey’s Seton Hall Law School has announced details of its Gaming law, Compliance and Integrity Program Inaugural Bootcamp which will take place at its Newark campus from March 9 to 11.

The school has collaborated with experts in gaming and sports law and compliance fields to develop relevant, engaging curriculum and session topics that will equip participants with a comprehensive understanding of the gaming industry. The agenda will include sessions on law, ethics, regulation, integrity, safer gambling and compliance.

The core objective of the Bootcamp will be to promote legal compliance and integrity in the gaming industry by providing high quality and robust legal, compliance, and ethics education to professionals working or seeking to work in the gaming space, as well as law students aspiring to practice in the field.

Throughout the intensive agenda, attendees will examine gaming-related laws and regulations alongside other compliance, ethics and integrity officers, legal counsel, gaming consultants, and regulatory professionals.

Rosa M Alves JD, Assistant Dean for External and Institutional Initiatives, outlined the target audience for the three-day program. “The Bootcamp is designed for gaming industry professionals, compliance officers, legal counsel, regulatory specialists, integrity officers, auditors and consultants, as well as those professionals seeking to enter the gaming space or aspiring to practice in the gaming legal field,” she said. 

“While there is no set criteria to enroll in the Bootcamp, attendees should have a desire to learn more about the gaming law space and a willingness to immerse themselves in all aspects of the field.”

According to Alves, the course will be of equal benefit for potential entrants to the industry as well as those already employed in the business looking to enhance their knowledge. She explained: “The Bootcamp is an intensive and interactive course – resulting in a certificate – in which the attendees will examine gaming-related laws and regulations alongside other compliance, ethics, and integrity officers, legal counsel, gaming consultants, and regulatory professionals. 

“Upon successful completion of the Bootcamp, potential entrants to the industry will have the necessary knowledge to understand the history, structure and future of the gaming industry; the gaming regulatory frameworks of the US and EU while understanding how to foster an ethical business culture.

“On the other hand, seasoned professionals will have the opportunity to further develop their abilities and skills to better address concerns of the industry. And both groups will have ample opportunity to network with and learn from their colleagues working in the field.”
