Examination of the tribal-state compacting process and an assessment of the legal and regulatory best practices in sports betting will be the focus of International Masters of Gaming Law Masterclasses at the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States Winter Meeting, January 10-12, at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina.

As the only gaming conference where the legislative decision-makers meet, dozens of state legislators from 17 states are among the nearly 200 NCLGS Winter Meeting registrants.

The NCLGS Winter Meeting is open to the public. Although the Marriott room block has sold out, NCLGS is providing a list of eight first-class hotels that are within easy walking distance of, and offered at comparable rates to, the host hotel.

The NCLGS Winter Meeting has been approved for 10.0 credits by the Nevada Board of Continuing Legal Education, underscoring its prominence as a vital gaming forum. Application for CLE credits with the State Bar of California is pending.

“IMGL is very much looking forward to having its next Masterclass at the annual NCLGS Winter Meeting,” said IMGL President Jamie Nettleton. “Our partnership with NCLGS has provided us with a terrific platform for a number of years now to lead the debate on key gambling industry topics and shape the future of gaming law.

“We would encourage IMGL members and other industry leaders to attend the San Diego conference on 11 January to participate in a discussion on subjects likely to be at the forefront of gambling sector regulation in the US and internationally during 2020,” Nettleton said
