Following the success of the first and second editions published in 2012, and 2014, (of which more than 2,000 copies were distributed worldwide) Julian Harris was asked to act again as General Editor of the third edition of Gaming Law.

The third edition of the publication includes more than 40 jurisdictions and important jurisdictions such as Argentina, China, Portugal, Romania and various US States. Julian co-authored the chapter on England and Wales with Bahar Alaeddini, and Bahar authored the chapter on Alderney. The foreword to the publication is written by Andre Wilsenach, Executive Director of the University of Las Vegas International Centre for Gaming Regulation and former Executive Director of the Alderney Gambling Control Board.

It takes no more than a cursory glance at the changes that have taken place in the world of gaming over the past two years to realise that a third edition of this book is timely. Despite continued questions in some jurisdictions about the issues to which gambling gives rise, more jurisdictions have decided that it can best be controlled, and consumers can best be protected, by the introduction or expansion of a regulated market, with of course the benefits of generating the revenue.

Gaming Law is now published online as a Global Guide on Practical Law, which can be accessed using the hyperlinks above. The book will again be published by Thomson Reuters and will be made available as a hardback book for sale through Sweet & Maxwell.
