11TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL BASEBALL ARBITRATION COMPETITION: JANUARY 17-19th, 2018

Thanks to the competitors and guest arbitrators who participated in the 10th Annual International Baseball Arbitration Competition, and thanks to Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association for their continued sponsorship of the event. Registration for the 11th Annual International Baseball Arbitration Competition is NOW CLOSED!

ABOUT THE COMPETITION

The International Baseball Arbitration Competition, run by the Tulane Sports Law Society, is a simulated salary arbitration competition modeled closely on the procedures used by Major League Baseball (MLB). Like most law school moot court competitions, the International Baseball Arbitration Competition's main goal is to provide participants with the opportunity to sharpen their oral and written advocacy skills. However, the competition is unique in that it allows law students to sharpen these skills within the specialized context of MLB's salary arbitration proceedings. The competition is held annually in the early part of the spring academic semester at Tulane University Law School. Additionally, at the conclusion of the arbitration competition the Sports Law Society hosts a panel of experts to discuss legal issues related to baseball.
