Coin Named to UNLV Post

One of the nation’s most prominent and respected American Indian advocates has been appointed to the Gaming Law Advisory Council of the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, law school Dean John Valery White announced last week.

Jacob L. Coin, a citizen of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona with more than 17 years experience in Native American public policy at the federal and state levels, will devote his efforts to expanding the law school curriculum to include more American Indian policy issues, including tribal governance, tribal government gaming law and economic development.

Coin will work with White to create a course on Native American gaming law. Material on tribal casinos and the laws that govern their creation and operation currently is included in the Introduction to Gaming Law and Federal Gaming Law courses.

Coin is executive director of public affairs for the San Manuel Band of Serrano Mission Indians of San Bernardino County, California.
