“Some Legal Briefs” – Experiences of a Gambling Lawyer

with Austen Science

online via zoom



Austen Science is a retired British lawyer who spent 40 years working in the U.K. gaming industry.

Austen Science is one of the few people in Israel who can hold his head up and say he made a living from the gambling industry. Not from betting on horses or the roulette wheel, but rather as a lawyer in the U.K. who specialized in the gaming and leisure industry.

The editor of several legal text books on gambling, gaming machines and lotteries, his work over the years, has left him with a lenient attitude towards gambling, which its harshest critics label a moral and social evil.

"The level of addicted gambling is minimal and you've got to weigh that up against the damage being done to society by driving gaming underground," says Science, who prefers the term "gaming" to "gambling," as the latter is "not sympathetic to the trade." Gaming, he emphasizes, includes lots of "innocuous activities," such as bingo, small prize machines and lotteries.

Today, new relaxations of gambling laws are being debated in the U.K., but Science has turned his attention to the gambling laws in his new home.
