Dean Dan Hamilton Speaks with VEGAS INC About Planned UNLV Gaming Center

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

On Dec. 12, Dean Hamilton was interviewed by VEGAS INC for an article titled “Planning underway for UNLV center on gaming regulation” that highlighted plans for creating a new academic center at UNLV dedicated to gaming regulation. The center will complement Boyd’s new Master of Laws degree in Gaming Law and Regulation.

A team of university officials, including Dean Hamilton, and other gaming industry professionals are working together to get the center up and running – projected to happen in time for the next academic year.

“There’s a lot we don’t know, there’s a lot we know but we haven’t put together in one place to really get a sense of the field, and there’s a lot we need to know,” he said. “This center will, we hope, act as a bridge between academia and industry and produce research that is useful to both.”

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.
