“UNLV Boyd is located in the international capital of gaming and we are delighted to create this program open to all,” said Daniel Hamilton, dean of the UNLV William S Boyd School of Law.

“Thanks to a gift from the GVC Foundation, gaming professionals around the globe can learn from those who are engaged in cutting-edge research on gaming and regulation.”

The initial courses to be offered include Introduction to Gaming Law and Regulation, Introduction to Gaming Operations, The Legal and Operational Environment for Sports Betting, Player Accountability and CorporateSocial Responsibility in Gaming Law, and Public Policy and Comparative Study of Gaming Laws and Regulations.
