Adjunct Professor Jennifer Roberts Profiled in Las Vegas Review-Journal

Jennifer Roberts is an adjunct professor at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On April 24, Professor Roberts was profiled in the Las Vegas Review-Journal for an article titled “Utah native takes roundabout route to becoming gaming attorney.”

The article, which includes a question and answer section, delves into Professor Roberts’ background and introduction into the practice of gaming law.

In response to the question of “What is your role with the Boyd School of Law?” Professor Roberts replied: “I used to sit in on the gaming law classes when Bob (Faiss) taught them. It was a great education. I sat in every semester until I started teaching them. I currently participate in three classes; an introduction to gaming law, a class on gaming law policy, and a class on resort hotel casino law.

“Gaming law policy gets into some deeper issues. Every legislative session, the students draft a bill to change a portion of gaming law in Nevada. This year, the students proposed amending the charitable gaming law statute to allow the activity across the state.

“We supplement our classes with guest lecturers from across the gaming industry. We’re able to show the students what practicing gaming law is all about.”

Professor Roberts is a partner in the Las Vegas office of Duane Morris. She focuses her practice on gaming law, including gaming licensing, gaming compliance, and gaming law development; federal, state and local alcohol beverage licensing and control; land use and zoning; business licensing; and regulatory and administrative law.
