The Tulane Sports Law Society is currently accepting applications to compete in their fifth annual pro football negotiation competition. The competition is open to any current law students and is an event that I highly recommend for anyone who may be interested in pursuing a career in sports law
I don’t think you will get a better opportunity to network with and interact with so many people who work in the NFL. It is a great chance to receive constructive feedback and ask questions that will only help you in the future. Every year there are multiple representatives from NFL teams (If I remember correctly there were eight teams there last year) and agencies that will act as judges across the two day event.
If you want to read a synopsis of what goes on during the competition you can check out my summary of last year’s event.
You can learn more about registering for the competition on Tulane’s website. If you have any additional questions or if any agents or current or former NFL employees are interested in judging feel free to reach out to me via email.
