The donation is intended to build on Entain’s Gaming Law, Compliance and Integrity Bootcamp.
US.- The UK-based gaming company Entain has donated $100,000 to Seton Hall Law School to provide ethics, legal, and compliance education related to the online sports betting and gaming sector.
The funds were donated through Entain’s non-profit affiliate Entain Foundation US.
Entain, which operates BetMGM with MGM casinos, said the donation will build on its Gaming Law, Compliance and Integrity Bootcamp launched at the law school in March 2020.
The bootcamp looks at case studies and key legislative provisions to help students achieve best practices in state-sanctioned gambling and industry regulation.
It also includes information on legal and regulatory structures in the gambling industry to ensure market integrity and player protection.
Senior vice president for American regulatory affairs and responsible gambling, Mark Lycka said: “The Bootcamp aligns with Entain’s focus on promoting sports integrity, responsible gambling, and corporate compliance.
“We look forward to extending our partnership with Seton Hall Law School, a leading law school and a recognized global leader in compliance education, to help provide professionals with the specialist skill needed to support the growth of this sector in the US.”
William J Pascrell III, a trustee of the Entain Foundation US and alumnus of Seton Hall Law School, said: “This industry is growing very rapidly, and needs the support of top-quality legal and compliance professionals who understand the complexities of the regulatory landscape. This is a really exciting collaboration which seeks to do that.”
