Law Schools that specialize in Sports Law
While there definitely are many Law Schools in America that allow you to specialize in Sports Law during your 3rd year of Law School, throughout my life, I have heard of three Law Schools that have exceptional Sports Law programs. Those schools are Tulane, Marquette, and Duke. Tulane’s “Sports Lawyers Journal” is known throughout the country as one of the best Sports Law Journals around.
Marquette boasts about its National Sports Law Institute, which is in charge of its “Marquette Sports Law Review,” which is also a prominent Sports Law publication in America.
And last, but definitely not least, is Duke…the Law School of Drew Rosenhaus, and a Law School that will put out many future successful Sports Agents. It has a Sports & Entertainment Law Society, and apparently hosts some of the best Sports Law professors in the country.
It is definitely not necessary to go to a Law School with a strong Sports Law program in order to be a Sports Agent, but by going to such a school, you should gain an extensive background in Sports Law that would help you in any area of the Sports Business world. In fact, as discussed in previous posts, an education in Law is not necessary to become a Sports Agent. Another point to consider is that if you do attend a graduate school, you may want to base that decision somewhat on their sports program. I personally feel, that if you put yourself in the right situation, it is likely that you meet your first client at the school you attend.
I will be adding Law Schools with Sports Law programs to the sidebar of links on the left side of this page.
