Sports and Entertainment Law Institute - Legal Residency Placements
UNH Law has an excellent success rate in placing students in sports & entertainment law legal residences.
The Sports and Entertainment Law Institute recognizes that students have a broad range of career interests.
They include ambitions to enter specific professions in sports and entertainment law, such as:

- In-house counsel to a team, league, network or studio
- A compliance officer for a university athletic program
- A mediator to employment disputes among athletes and teams or performers and studios
- Among many other legal careers in the sports and entertainment fields
Other students may want to incorporate sports and entertainment law into a broader practice of law, such as a civil litigator who handles sports and entertainment disputes, along with other types of disputes, or an immigration attorney who helps teams sign players from other countries. The career possibilities in sports and entertainment law are endless and the Institute will help students navigate through potential opportunities.
