National Sports Law Negotiation Competition & Sports Law Conference 2015
NSLNC 2015: Friday, September 25 - Sunday, September 27, 2015
History & Vision of the National Sports Law Negotiation Competition
The annual National Sports Law Negotiation Competition (NSLNC) and Sports Law Conference 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 and succeed in the legal world. 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 world. 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, like businesses and entities.
The competition focuses on current issues in the sports world each year and facilitates students, coaches and judges to negotiate and make decisions on these sports topics in an academic setting. The fact patterns 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 sports law conference, San Diego Padres game in private suites, the competition, and of course meeting future lawyers, agents and current sports professionals and judicial officers from across this great Country and the World in America’s finest city, San Diego, California.
