Tulane National Baseball Arbitration Competition
The Tulane National Baseball Arbitration Competition is less than two weeks away. TJ Henry, who is responsible for organizing the competition, was recently interviewed about the competition by Hardball Times. You can listen to the podcast here: http://bit.ly/zZ3Qon.
Every year, the Tulane Sports Law Society puts on a moot MLB arbitration competition where law students from across the country argue simulated salary-arbitration cases. Like law school moot court competitions, the National Baseball Arbitration Competition's main goal is to provide participants with the opportunity to sharpen their oral and written advocacy skills. The competition, however, is unique in that it allows law students to sharpen these skills within the specialized context of MLB's salary arbitration proceedings. The competition also provides a unique opportunity to network with industry professionals who serve as arbitrators and panel members at the symposium which follows the competition.
This is a must-hear podcast for law students who are interested in competing in future years and others who want a better sense of what the competition is.
