The sports industry is complex and there is a growing demand for qualified sports law professionals with an array of expertise in law to effectively represent their clients whether they are professional or amateur athletes, leagues or clubs, sports venues and stadium owners and operators, or businesses or sports organizations.
Though “sports law” may sound niche, it is actually a broad industry crossing many areas of law.
Sports lawyers usually require skills like negotiation, drafting, and arbitration plus knowledge of various areas of law including: contracts, labor, antitrust, tax, intellectual property and media law.
Other areas of law, like immigration, can also come into play for foreign athletes and international leagues or clubs.
