The gaming studies program at the Boyd School of Law prepares students to address sophisticated, cutting-edge legal and policy issues in Nevada, across the United States, and around the world.  The study of gaming cuts across multiple areas of the law, requiring mastery of concepts in administrative and regulatory law, labor and employment, intellectual property, business and finance, and related legal areas.  The study of gaming is also multi-disciplinary, and law students benefit from cross-campus collaborations with the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration, the International Gaming Institute, and the Lied Library Center for Gaming Research.   

The Boyd School of Law offers many opportunities for students to become engaged with gaming law and current events. 

  • First, the law school offers more courses in gaming law and policy than any law school in the U.S. 
  • Second, these courses are open to both JD students and students enrolled in the new LL.M. in Gaming Law and Regulation. 
  • Third, the Gaming Law Journal and the Gaming Law Society provide students the opportunity to engage gaming issues outside of the classroom. 
  • Finally, the law school hosts several executive education programs and individual guest speakers each year enriching and enhancing the gaming conversation throughout the greater law school community.
