Sports and Entertainment Law Institute - Workshops and Training

The Sports and Entertainment Law Institute provides opportunities for students who demonstrate a talent and passion for sports law with core skills in the practice of sports law and opportunities for thoughtful discussion of contemporary sports law issues.

To advance those goals, we regularly host workshops on:

Contract drafting, including drafting of employment contracts, endorsement contracts, licensing contracts and stadium/concession contracts.

These workshops will particularly benefit students who are interested in becoming sports agents, attorneys for teams, or attorneys for companies which negotiate contracts with leagues, teams or players.

NCAA regulations and application of regulations to real-world situations.

These workshops will particularly benefit students who are interested in becoming NCAA compliance officers at colleges and universities, and those who would like to get on the track to becoming an athletic director.

Sports litigation, arbitration and mediation.

These workshops will particularly benefit students who are interested in becoming litigators, arbitrators or mediators and whose practice involves sports.

Obtaining a job or experiential learning opportunity in sports law.

These workshops will center on strategies for applying for a position as an agent, team or league attorney, private practice attorney, NCAA compliance officer and many other entry-level positions in the industry.

Our students are bright and intellectually curious, and many have impressive backgrounds in engineering and science. I’m not surprised that UNH Law is on the ‘up and up’. And the UNH Law alumni network, with many graduates in sports and entertainment law professions, only strengthens the Institute. The school also has deep professional and alumni contacts abroad, especially in Asia, where professional sports are growing rapidly.
