“The Boyd School of Law has longhad by far the most extensive gaminglaw curriculum of any law school.”
BY GUEST WRITER PROF. STEVE JOHNSON, WILLIAM S. BOYD SCHOOL OF LAW
This summer the William S. Boyd School of Law, inconjunction with the International Masters of GamingLaw, published the first issue of the
UNLV Gaming Law Journal 
. In the 2010-2011 academic year andin subsequent years, the
UNLV Gaming Law Journal 
 intends to publish at least two issues per year.Student-edited scholarly journals are an importantpart of legal education. Law schools exist to producenew knowledge, to disseminate knowledge and toimpart skills. Law reviews are where old perspectiveson the law are retested and where new perspectivesare offered, evaluated and communicated. Law reviewsalso are where generations of future leaders of thebench and bar learn analytical, research writing andleadership skills.From the early years of the law school’sexistence, our first student-edited law review, the
 Nevada Law Journal,
has produced and disseminatedlegal knowledge and taught key legal skills. The
 Nevada Law Journal 
has risen steadily in the rankingsof law review productivity and impact.To expand our students’ opportunities to learnand to contribute to discourse about the law, thelaw school wished to create a second journal. Giventhe importance of gaming law to Nevada – andincreasingly to other states and countries – a reviewspecializing in gaming law was a natural choice. TheBoyd School of Law has long had by far the mostextensive gaming law curriculum of any law school.The
UNLV Gaming Law Journal 
anchors that programand will facilitate expansion of the program in the years to come.Indicative of the importance of gaming law,we are proud that the inaugural issue of the
UNLV Gaming Law Journal 
contains well-wishes andmessages of congratulations from United StatesSenator Harry Reid, Governor Jim Gibbons,Representatives Shelley Berkley and Dean Heller,and Anthony Coles, President of the InternationalMasters of Gaming Law. After a foreword by Dean John Valery White,the first issue of the
UNLV Gaming Law Journal 
contains six articles. Two striking characteristics of gaming law are the diversity of issues encounteredby attorneys in the field and the increasinglyinternational nature of the practice. The six articlesillustrate both of these characteristics.The first article is “Economic Value, EqualDignity and the Future of Sweepstakes” by AnthonyN. Cabot, Glenn J. Light and Karl F. Rutledge, all American lawyers. The article explores how theelement of consideration is analyzed in the contextof whether a particular activity is illegal gamblingor a legal sweepstakes. American attorneys Heidi McNeil Staudenmeierand Ruth K. Khalsa contributed “A Post-Carcieri Vocabulary Exercise: What if ‘Now’ Really Means‘Then’?” This article considers important topicsin Indian gaming: the effects of the United StatesSupreme Court’s 2009 decision in
Carcieri v. Salazar
 on land-trust applications by tribes and possibleremedies for problems caused by that decision.Law Professor Marita Carnelley of the Universityof Kwazulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg, South Africaauthored “Betting on Dog Racing. The NextLegalized Gambling Opportunity in South Africa? A Cautionary Note from the Regulation of GreyhoundRacing in Britain.” The article concludes that
