In partnership with hearthe UNLV William S Boyd School of Law announced that it will launch an online training program for operators, regulators, lawyers and others working in and around the gaming industry.
Beginning March 1, classes have been designed and will be delivered by instructors with decades of professional gaming and teaching experience. A Juris Doctor degree or a first law degree required to practice law in international markets is not required by students 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 recognizes “there is an increased need for regulatory professionals and talented and competent operations”.
The initial courses to be offered include:
- Introduction to Gaming Law and Regulation – taught by Anthony Cabot, Distinguished Researcher in Gaming Law at the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law.
- Casino Operations and Law – taught by William Buffalo who has over 30 years of legal experience in hospitality and casino entertainment.
- Introduction to Indian Gaming Law – taught by senior members of the UNLV International Gaming Regulatory Center Kathryn Rand, Floyd B. Sperry Professor of Law and former Dean of the UND Law School, and Steve Light, professor of political science and public administration and former acting dean of the UND College of Business & Public Administration.
- Player Responsibility and Corporate Social Responsibility in Gaming Law – taught by Alan Feldman, Distinguished Fellow in Responsible Gaming at UNLV’s International Gaming Institute (IGI) and Dayvid Figler, attorney and national expert on the intersection of criminal justice and games.
