Professionals with careers in the gaming industry can further improve their status through an LLM in Gaming Law and Regulation degree offered by the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) William S. Boyd School of Law. This Master of Laws (LLM) program complements well the Law School's JD program, which is currently the law school in the world that offers the most number of gaming courses. With the increased growth rate of the gaming industry today, more highly knowledgeable lawyers and legal practitioners are needed.
Strategically located in the international capital of gaming, UNLV's LLM students will have easy access to world-renowned gaming regulators and professionals, can easily learn and observe cutting-edge decision-making and debates, and create lasting and effective connections that can be useful throughout their legal professions.
The U.S. News and World Report has given UNLV a no. 62 ranking for 2018 Best Colleges in America. This is a 16-spot jump from the previous year's ranking, making it ahead of other major California private schools and public law schools. It shares its 62nd ranking with Case Western Reserve University and Rutgers.
The LLM in Gaming Law and Regulation program is open to those with a prior LLB, JD or other law degrees from other countries. The LLM program may be taken full-time for one year or part-time for two years. Students may ask permission to complete the degree at a slower or accelerated pace, thus affording them with great flexibility. LLM candidates will undergo classroom instruction and practical experience from top gaming lawyers besides the following perks:
- affordable housing
- low cost of living
- no state tax
- access to outdoor and recreational activities
- access to world-class dining, international entertainment, nightlife and shopping
