he UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law announced today that it will develop an online training program for operators, regulators, lawyers and others who work in and around the worldwide gaming industry. The mostly asynchronous classes, which will launch during the first and second quarters of 2021, will be created and taught by instructors with decades of professional gaming and teaching experience.

As gaming continues to expand across the country and throughout the world, there is an increased need for talented and knowledgeable regulatory and operational professionals. These professional programs complement UNLV Boyd's existing, and extensive, J.D. gaming curriculum as well as its LL.M. in Gaming Law and Regulation.

"The online courses announced by the UNLV William S. Boyd School of law represent another significant step in the law school's and industry leaders' ongoing campaign to prepare professionals to navigate the evolving complexities of the U.S. gaming markets," said Martin Lycka, trustee of the GVC Foundation U.S. "The GVC Foundation U.S. is proud to sponsor this innovative, online program that closely aligns with our Foundation's focus on responsible gambling, sports integrity and compliance."

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. Introduction to Gaming Operations taught by Uri Clinton who was formerly the President and Chief Operating Officer of MGM Empire City Casino in New York.
  3. The Legal and Operational Environment for Sports Betting taught by Keith Miller, Ellis and Nelle Levitt Distinguished Professor of Law at Drake Law School and visiting professor at the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law.
  4. Player Accountability and CorporateSocial 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.
