Dean Dan Hamilton Talks New Gaming Center at Boyd School of Law

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

In the June 17 issue of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Dean Hamilton was quoted in an article titled “Center for gaming regulators to be created at UNLV Boyd School of Law” about the planned International Center for Gaming Regulation.

The article read: “Hamilton said he envisions the center will have four goals and outcomes: thought leadership that will foster a think tank environment on gaming regulation policy; education to develop best practices and create model regulatory standards; a data information repository to (maintain) a site for storing regulatory research and documents; and a communications hub that would connect regulators, gaming attorneys, and the gaming industry. ‘The center is designed to be a producer of cutting-edge academic research on the issues and opportunities facing gaming and a way to archive and collect the best gaming research,’ Hamilton said. ‘Right now, there isn’t this type of academic resource.’ Hamilton said the program will become ‘a training ground for regulators new to the industry and for experienced regulators looking to develop best practices.’”

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.
