Newswise — Buffalo State professor of business law Joseph M. Kelly has studied gambling since the 1980s and the online version since 1997.

Kelly can speak to the topic of gambling in general and specifically to the recent controversy over whether daily fantasy sports is a form of online gambling, as New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman maintains in his lawsuit against prominent daily fantasy sites FanDuel and DraftKings. With a juris doctor and doctorate in history, Kelly joined the Buffalo State Business Department faculty in 1990. He also works as an associate with the New Jersey-based Catania & Ehrlich law firm, which specializes in gaming law, and he’s licensed to practice law in Nevada where he once lived.

Kelly serves as co-editor-in-chief of Gaming Law Review and Economics and he has served as an expert witness for gaming companies, the Virgin Islands Casino Control Commission, and the South African Parliamentary Committee on Trade and Industry. This year he also has spoken on online gaming topics at conferences organized by Morgan Stanley, iGaming, the American Gaming Association, and the American Bar Association.
