UNLV Launches Executive Online Training Program in Gaming Law and Regulation
Las Vegas is the gambling capital of the world, and the industry is beginning to spread into the area’s education. The UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law recently announced a new online training program in gaming law and education.
This is significant news for the gaming industry because it shows the growth that has taken place in the past few years. Since the unconstitutional ruling from the Supreme Court regarding the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, sports betting has swept the nation.
The growth of sports betting has helped the casino industry continue to excel throughout the nation. The new program at the William S. Boyd School of Law is the first of many expected to arise in the gaming industry.
Details of the Program
The program will be conducted in partnership with Entain, one of the largest sports betting and gaming organizations in the online and retail sector. The online training program will teach students a lot of the important details regarding gaming law and regulation.
The program at UNLV is designed for operators, regulators, lawyers, and other gaming industry employees. The program will be completely online and primarily asynchronous.
It will begin on January 10 and be taught by instructors with decades of professional gaming and teaching experience. The initial semester will be four courses.
The eventual program will be eight classes, and it’s designed to prepare gaming professionals for the regulatory challenges they will face in the industry. Participants will not be required to hold a Juris Doctor or have any prior law experience to register.
The program will launch on January 10, and four courses will be available.
• Introduction to Gaming Law & Regulation with Anthony Cabot
• Resort Casino Law with William Buffalo
• Introduction to Indian Gaming Law with Kathryn Rand and Steven Light
• Player Accountability & Corporate Social Responsibility in Gaming Law with Alan Feldman and Dayvid Figler
The first four classes will be designed to be completed over the spring semester. Each course will require 20-25 hours of work through the online portal. The cost will be $2,500 per class, so the whole certificate will be approximately $20,000.
The future courses being planned are Public Policy and Comparative Study of Gaming Laws and Regulations and The Legal and Operational Environment for Sports Betting. For more information, check out the William S. Boyd School of Law program website.
