In partnership with Entain, the UNLV William S Boyd School of Law has announced it will launch an online training program for operators, regulators, lawyers, and others who work in and around the gaming industry.
Beginning on March 1, the classes have been designed and will be taught by instructors with decades of professional gaming and teaching experience. A Juris Doctor degree or first degree of law required to practice law in international markets is not required by students in order to enroll.
Alongside Entain, the Las Vegas-based University has developed four new courses to complement its current Gaming Law and Regulation course as it acknowledges “there is an increased need for talented and knowledgeable regulatory and operational professionals”.
The initial courses to be offered include:
- Introduction to Gaming Law and Regulation – taught by Anthony Cabot, Distinguished Fellow in Gaming Law at the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law.
- Casino Operations and the Law – taught by William Buffalo who has more than 30 years of legal experience in hospitality and casino entertainment.
- Introduction to Indian Gaming Law – taught by Distinguished Fellows at the UNLV International Center for Gaming Regulation Kathryn Rand, Floyd B. Sperry Professor of Law and former Dean of the UND School of Law, and Steve Light, Professor of Political Science and Public Administration and former Interim Dean of the UND College of Business & Public Administration.
- Player Accountability and Corporate Social Responsibility in Gaming Law – taught by Alan Feldman, Distinguished Fellow in Responsible Gaming at the International Gaming Institute (IGI) at UNLV and Dayvid Figler, attorney and national expert on where criminal justice and gaming intersect.
