Maria Jose Schmidt-Kessen, Julia Hörnle, Alan Littler

Research output: Working paperResearch


Gambling regulators in several European jurisdictions use website blocking as enforcement tool against illegal online gambling websites. Users trying to access blocked gambling websites are redirected to a landing page provided by the regulator. We analyse how insights from legal design could improve the effectiveness of landing pages as communication channel between regulators and players.
