Tomorrow: "New Era in Gaming Law" Symposium

The Northern Kentucky Law Review and the W. Bruce Lunsford Academy for Law, Business and Technology will host "The New Era in Gaming Law" Symposium on Friday, March 20, 2015, at Northern Kentucky Law School. Featuring some of the country's leading gaming law experts, including Sports Law Blog Contributors Ryan Rodenberg and Marc Edelman, this symposium will explore emerging regulatory and legalization issues regarding sports betting, fantasy sports, and online gambling. I will be speaking about the latest developments in the New Jersey sports betting controversy and how the path to legalized sports betting has taken a unpredictable due to the emergence and popularity of daily fantasy sports and the "partial repeal" strategy employed by New Jersey (with the apparent blessing of the Third Circuit and the federal government). The symposium will also include a student scholarship showcase of law review students presenting their student notes on gaming law issues.

The symposium has been approved for 5.5 hours of general CLE credits in Ohio, and is anticipated to e approved for 5.5 hours of general CLE credits in Kentucky and Indiana. Registration is complimentary and includes the anticipated CLE credits, breakfast, lunch, reception, and all published materials.
