Remember my post about the National Baseball Arbitration Competition hosted by Tulane Law School? Well it has come and gone. It took place from January 22-24 and congratulations are officially in order for the following schools who were well represented by their students.
1st place – Denver Law School
2nd place – Notre Dame Law School
Semi-Finalists – Suffolk Law School and Ave Maria Law School
Now I get to host a brilliant mind from Tulane Law School on my home soil at the University of Florida. Professor Gabe Feldman, Director of the Tulane Sports Law Program, will be a part of this Friday’s 2010 UF Sports Law Symposium, serving on the MLB Collective Bargaining Agreement panel. Can’t make it to Gainesville? Watch the event live!
And while the National Baseball Arbitration Competition is over, we are right in the heart of the real-life MLB arbitration period. Team and player arbitration figures have been exchanged and many groups have settled. The actual hearings period is between February 1-21. You better believe that many agents and attorneys are hard at work preparing their cases just in case. Roughly half of the 44 players who filed for arbitration have yet to settle.
