The program itself sounds really impressive and I'm seriously considering Tulane because of it, but I can't seem to find any information on how many people are involved in it. Clearly there are some success stories of Tulane Law students enrolled in the program who get great internships and go on to work in sports, but I'm wondering how common that is. What do all of the students in the Sports Law program who don't get those great internships/jobs do once they graduate? And also, what are your thoughts on the Sports Law program in general?
I am similarly interested in receiving an answer to this question. The sole reason I applied to Tulane is for the Sports Law Program. They offered me a 30K a year scholarship, but I only plan to attend if the program uniquely adds to the JD (connections/internships/specific knowledge). Otherwise I may choose to attend Hastings (alumni advisor is general counsel of the Dodgers) or Loyola (sports law concentration, 32K/yr and stay in CA). I am looking into plane tickets to Tulane for ASD, but the $$ is making me really decide whether I would truly attend ($250 stipend is really not that much). Thanks in advance!
While I'm not familiar with the Sports Law program, I do know the following:
1. Tulane students edit the Sports Lawyer Journal, which is the premier journal of its kind
2. Tulane has a certificate in Sports Law
3. A few of my friends have worked with various teams, including the Astros and the Saints (including for post graduation employment).
4. Gabe Feldman
5. There is a sports law society
6. Tulane hosts the Mardi Gras Moot Court Competition, which is the only annual moot court program that focuses on the sports industry
7. Tulane runs the National Baseball Moot Court competition
I think the law school actually has a page dedicated the sports law program somewhere.
