The William S. Boyd School of Law boasts the #1 Legal Writing program in the country, as ranked by US News & World Report. The 2022 Frank A. Schreck Gaming Law Moot Court Competition will be held tentatively in-person on March 11-12, 2022. 

The Competition focuses on emerging issues at the intersection of gaming law and regulation. Competitors will hone their appellate advocacy skills before prominent jurists and practitioners in the gaming capital of the world: Las Vegas, Nevada!

Registration Information

Registration opens on Monday, October 11, 2021. The early bird registration deadline is Monday, November 1, 2021. The regular registration deadline is Friday, December 17, 2021. Registration for the competition will close on the registration deadline, or once there are 28 registered teams, whichever is sooner. Please check this page periodically for registration details and competition updates. The pricing for early-bird registrants is $500 for one team and $900 for two teams. For regular registrants, the pricing is $550 for one team and $1100 for two teams. More information can be found on the 2022 Competition Flyer. 

The current pricing information is based off the assumption we will be able to hold an in-person competition. However, if federal, state, and local recommendations do not permit such an event, we will adjust to an online format for the competition. 

In the event the competition format is changed to online, the above pricing will be adjusted. 

If moved to an online format, each team will be contacted via email informing them of such change. After being informed of the change, each team will have 14-days to determine whether they want to seek a refund.  If a team chooses to cancel registration, we will issue a refund of the amount paid less $50.00 per team.  

Registration closed.

Mr. Schreck has represented many of the premier public and private gaming companies (including Wynn Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, Station Casinos, Pinnacle Entertainment, Penn National Gaming, Scientific Games Corporation, and William Hill PLC); private equity firms (including Apollo Global Management, TPG, Blackstone Real Estate Advisors, and Leonard Green & Partners), as well as large financial institutions that became involved in the ownership of casino properties (including Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and Credit Suisse).
