9TH ANNUAL NATIONAL BASEBALL ARBITRATION COMPETITION: JANUARY 21-22, 2016 

Registration for the 9th Annual National Baseball Arbitration Competition is now open. Please see the registration and competition materials below for more information. 

 

ABOUT THE COMPETITION 

The National 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 National 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.
