Dean Dan Hamilton Featured on News 3's Jim Rogers' Nevada - Part 5

Dan Hamilton is the Dean and Richard J. Morgan Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Nov. 15, he was featured on News 3's Jim Rogers' Nevada program.

"There are 200 law schools in this country. There are by now 450 non-J.D. programs in those law schools. UNLV law school at this point doesn't have any, so there's room for growth. We see the most room for growth, at this point, in gaming law and trying to connect the law school to training and education in gaming law. We can be for gaming law what NYU is for tax law, namely the place where people come from around the city, and around the country, and around the world for certification and programs in gaming law. This is a natural for the law school in this city, which remains the center of gaming law expertise, probably, in the world," he said during the interview.

Dean Hamilton researches and writes primarily on American property ideology and the legal and constitutional issues raised by the Civil War. He has written numerous articles and reviews on American legal history.
