8TH ANNUAL NATIONAL BASEBALL ARBITRATION COMPETITION: JANUARY 28-30, 2015 

The 2015 National Baseball Arbitration Competition Problem has been released via email to all competitors. If you are a competitor and have not received it, please contact Hamilton Wise (hwise@tulane.edu) or Andrew Respess (arespess@tulane.edu) at tulane.baseball.arbitration@gmail.com 

 

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.
