Tulane Law School Baseball Arbitration Competition



I am proud to announce that the Tulane Law School Sports Law Society will be hosting its third annual National Baseball Arbitration Competition from January 22-24, 2010. This is a really great and unique event that allows students to argue a baseball arbitration case involving real players and real statistics. We already have a number of great guest arbitrators lined up to judge the competition and will have students from schools across the country competing in the event. The official announcement from the Tulane Sports Law Society is attached below. Click here for the competition's website and more information. I look forward to seeing many of you down in New Orleans for the competition...


About the Competition
The Tulane Law School Sports Law Society is pleased to invite your school to compete in the 2010 Tulane Law School National Baseball Arbitration Competition. The Baseball Arbitration Competition is a simulated salary arbitration competition modeled closely on the salary arbitration procedures used by Major League Baseball. Like most law school moot court competitions, the Competition’s main goal is to provide participants with the opportunity to sharpen their oral and written advocacy skills, which are essential for a successful career as an attorney. The Competition, however, is unique in that it allows law students across the country with an interest in the growing body of sports law to sharpen these skills within the specialized context of Major League Baseball’s salary arbitration proceedings. This will be an exciting and educational legal exercise for all participants, as it will provide participants an opportunity to learn more about one of the legal processes used in the sports industry. In its two-year history the Competition has grown significantly, and we fully expect an increase in participation once again.

Schedule & Registration Materials
The Baseball Arbitration Competition is open to any ABA accredited law school. This year, the Competition will begin the evening of Friday, January 22nd, with a reception for competitors and participants. Competition rounds will begin the morning of Saturday, January 23rd, and continue through the afternoon of Sunday, January 24th.
