Boyd School of Law to Host Internet Gaming Regulation Symposium

The Boyd School of Law is pleased to host the Internet Gaming Regulation Symposium on Friday, May 18, 2012, in UNLV's Thomas & Mack Moot Court Room.

The Symposium, which will address best practices for the regulation of internet gaming, will feature world-renowned speakers and authors who are highly knowledgeable in their respective fields. Each speaker will tackle a category of regulation critical to a well-regulated internet gaming environment, including age and identity verification, location verification, fraud and cheating detection and prevention including anti-collusion, international dispute resolution, technical requirements for systems licensing requirements for operators, service providers and manufacturers, responsible gaming, accounting, audit, reporting and recordkeeping, and more. Boyd's own Professor Marketa Trimble will address the topic of location verification. The paper that forms the basis of Professor Trimble's talk, along with papers written by other Symposium speakers, will be published in book form in fall 2012.

The complete schedule for the Symposium, which has been approved for six CLE credits, is available here. For additional information, including registration, go to http://www.law.unlv.edu/GamingRegulation2012.
