History & Vision of the National Sports Law Negotiation Competition
The annual National Sports Law Negotiation Competition (NSLNC) is hosted and organized by the Center for Sports Law & Policy (CSLP) at Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California, every September.
The NSLNC was created by sports and academic professionals with the needs and wants of the law student in mind as they enter the legal community. The NSLNC’s purpose is to give back to law students a great experience, competition, and place to meet like minds in the sports law industry. Our mission is to provide the sports profession with a body of able and ready legal minds, through the negotiation and training of law students with the use of real-life issues affecting athletes, sports franchises, teams, businesses, and entities.
The NSLNC fact patterns focus on current issues in sports each year and facilitates students, coaches, and judges to negotiate and make decisions on these sports topics in an academic setting. The fact patterns negotiated allow students to focus on more than one area of sports law, including: contract negotiation, trading of players, salary demands, endorsement contracts, athlete and sports professionals family and personal issues, and intellectual property among others.
It is our hope that you enjoy the yearly competition weekend, which includes a weekend of social activities, the competition, and of course meeting future lawyers, agents, current sports professionals, and judicial officers from across this great Country, and the World, in America’s finest city, San Diego, California.
