Statement of Purpose

The International Masters of Gaming Law is the pre-eminent global gambling law networking and educational organization shaping the future of Gaming Law.  Our members are specialists in many gambling sectors – Compliance; Cross Border Regulation; iGaming; Legislative Affairs; Education; Lotteries; Taxation; Terrestrial Gambling; and Wagering. IMGL is at the forefront of the latest developments in international gambling law.

IMGL membership consists of 350 members and represents over 43 countries as well as members in 34 states and territories in the United States.

IMGL members are committed to participation in industry-sponsored conferences as well as the two yearly conferences sponsored by the IMGL. The IMGL conferences focus on issues facing the gaming practitioner worldwide.

The IMGL is creating a substantive body of gaming law work with our six magazines American Gaming Lawyer, Canadian Gaming Lawyer, European Gaming Lawyer, Asian Gaming Lawyer, Indian Gaming Lawyer, and La Ley del Juego (The Law of the Game), as well as publishing the Global Gaming Regulations Library, sponsoring the UNLV Gaming Law Journal and the Gaming Law Review and Economics publications.

The open networking and collective experience of its members makes the IMGL an integral and effective tool for the dissemination of gaming law developments worldwide. The IMGL members practice independently and not in a relationship for the joint practice of law.
