UNLV and Entain launch new online gaming law training program

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) has partnered with online wagering giant Entain to launch a new online training program for operators, regulators, lawyers and others who work in and around the global gaming industry.

The classes, beginning on 1 March 2022, have been created and will be taught by instructors with decades of professional gaming and teaching experience. Students are not required to hold a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree or first degree of law required to practice law in international markets in order to enrol.

UNLV said there is an increased need for talented and knowledgeable regulatory and operational professionals as the industry rapidly expands worldwide, with the professional programs complementing UNLV Boyd’s existing J.D. gaming curriculum as well as its LL.M. in Gaming Law and Regulation.

The initial courses to be offered include:

  1. Introduction to Gaming Law and Regulation taught by Anthony Cabot, Distinguished Fellow in Gaming Law at the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law.
  2. Casino Operations and the Law taught by William Buffalo who has more than 30 years of legal experience in hospitality and casino entertainment.
  3. Introduction to Indian Gaming Law taught by Distinguished Fellows at the UNLV International Center for Gaming Regulation Kathryn Rand, Floyd B. Sperry Professor 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.
  4. 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.
