The William Boyd School of Law, part of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), has partnered with Entain to deliver a program of courses in gaming law and regulation.
A training program for operators, regulators, lawyers and others in the industry will be delivered online, starting on 1 March. The classes have been designed, and will be delivered, by instructors with decades of practical experience in the professional gaming arena. They will also have previous teaching experience. Each course is expected to consist of 20-25 hours of study.
The initial courses to be offered include: Introduction to Gaming Law and Regulation, taught by gaming law expert, Anthony Cabot; Casino Operations and the Law, delivered by hospitality and casino experience expert, William Buffalo; Introduction to Indian Gaming Law, taught by numerous Fellows of the UNLV International Center for Gaming Regulation; and Player Accountability and Corporate Social Responsibility in Gaming Law, taught by responsible gaming expert, Alan Feldman, and criminal justice attorney, Dayvid Figler.
Unlike other law courses offered by the Institute, a Juris Doctor degree, or first degree of law required to practice law in international markets, is not required by students to enlist.
The four courses have been developed in partnership with Entain, the gambling giant operating multiple online and retail brands, including Ladbrokes, Bwin and Coral. The courses will complement the University’s current Gaming Law and Regulation program.
This is the second time Entain has partnered with UNLV in recent months, with the Entain Foundation providing a grant for a gambling research initiative in September 2021.
The project is to combine scientific research with operational expertise to apply best practice in responsible gambling, policy and health.
