Gaming Law in Legal Education: Gaming Law's Unexplored Opportunities in America's Law Schools

Despite more than thirty years of rapid growth in the gaming industry, only a handful of law schools have built programs that train lawyers for this expanding field of law and fewer still have constructed coursework that fully takes advantage of its unique learning opportunities. At the time of this writing, only 23 law schools are offering classes in gaming law with any regularity. Of those schools, only 12 had offered a class in the subject prior to 2004. Moreover, most of the schools that do offer gaming law classes, so narrowly focus their curriculum that they sometimes ignore the diversity of legal scholarship that the subject has to offer. This dearth of gaming law education is a rare opportunity for certain law schools and professors—an opportunity that, if seized upon, could enhance the caliber of a school’s curriculum and better prepare students for the challenges of legal practice.
