The UNLV Boyd School of Law has partnered with Entain to launch an online training program for operators, regulators and lawyers focusing on the regulations of the gaming industry.
Beginning from March 1, the program has been developed by people with decades of teaching and professional gaming experience. Enrolling students are not required to have a Juris Doctor degree or a degree in law in international markets.
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”.
Breaking down the different courses made available, UNLV and Entain will offer an ‘Introduction to Gaming Law and Regulation’, taught by Anthony Cabot, a fellow in Gaming Law at the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law.
Furthermore, the school will offer a ‘Casino Operations and the Law’ class, led by William Buffalo, who has over three decades of experience in the gaming and hospitality industry, specifically working in law.
The ‘Introduction to Indian Gaming Law’ course will be 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.
Finally, the ‘Player Accountability and Corporate Social Responsibility in Gaming Law’ course will be 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.
