Help A Syracuse Law School Student Interested In Sports/Entertainment Law

Joshua Meredith is on a mission to create a new Entertainment and Sports Law Certificate program at the Syracuse University College of Law and reached out to me with the hope that I could spread word about his effort and possibly find some help for him to accomplish his mission.  The certificate for the program is through the first level of clearance and will go to a full faculty vote this Friday, February 6th.  If you are an agent, lawyer, potential law school student, or anyone else that the Syracuse law faculty may take seriously, send Joshua a letter that he can pass on, explaining why such a certificate would be a benefit to the law school.  I know I wish that UF law had such a certificate, let alone one Sports and/or Entertainment law class.

[…] On February 3, 2009, I posted about Meredith’s effort to create the Entertainment and Sports Law Studies Certificate and asked that you help him achieve his goal.  Thanks to those of you who lent Meredith a hand; our profession needs more programs like the one being implemented at Syracuse Law.Popularity: unranked [?] Tags: Entertainment, Sports Law, Syracuse Law Related Posts: Help A Syracuse Law School Student Interested In Sports/Entertainment Law […]
