Kevin Washburn has created a teaching vehicle that sparks students’ interest and prompts them to apply a range of legal concepts to current and real-world issues.

    • the expertise of Kevin Washburn in field and classroom
    • key issues and policy questions that arise in both legal and illegal gambling
    • up-to-date coverage of the fast-growing phenomenon of on-line gamgambling
