UNLV professor Anthony Cabot has authored or co-authored 12 books on gaming law during his 37-year career as an attorney. But the legal expert, who holds the title of distinguished fellow of gaming law at the William S. Boyd School of Law, has surprised even his closest friends with his ability to create sculptures.

“I always had an interest in art, but I never really thought of myself as someone who would produce art,” Cabot said in an interview at his Summerlin home, adorned with sculptures he has created.

It stands to reason that his desire to create art pieces is frequently inspired by the industry he has been a part of for his entire career.
