Tulane Law is extremely fortunate to have a pre-eminent Sports Law Program. Many of our students choose TLS specifically for the extensive sports law curriculum providing students with an unparalled exposure to the relevant issues encountered by practitioners in the sports law arena. TLS also offers a Certificate of Specialization in Sports Law
which includes a coherent foundation preparing students for the various practice areas encountered by the sports law practitioner. In addition to the certificate program, TLS offers its students the opportunity to participate on the staff of The Sports Lawyers Journal
. Students may write short articles or assist in editing. Additionally, TLS has an active student-run Sports Law Society
that regularly meets with important sports figures to discuss legal issues, and often sponsors public programs involving leading sports attorneys and business leaders. In the spring, Tulane's Moot Court Board will host the annual Mardi Gras National Moot Court Competition
, based on a contemporary legal problem confronting the sports industry. Finally, we are very proud to have Professor Gabe Feldman as an Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Sports Law Program at TLS. Professor Feldman has appeared on radio and television programs and is regularly quoted in newspapers throughout the country, including recently in The Salt Lake Tribune
and in USAToday
. If you have any further questions about our Sports Law Program, please review the Sports Law Brochure located on this website
Tulane Law also has a very active alumni group practicing in the sports law industry. These alumni work for teams, governing bodies, firms, and many other disciplines practicing sports law. One of our alumni, Dean Warren Zola, recently testified before the US Congress on “The Impacts of Back-Room Deals, Payoffs, and Scandals in American Collegiate Student Athletics.” Warren K. Zola is the Assistant Dean for Graduate Programs in the Carroll School of Management at Boston College. He earned his Juris Doctor degree from Tulane University in 1992 where he founded the Sports Law Society.
