An important part of Tulane's sports law program, the Sports Lawyers Journal publishes articles addressing emerging issues in sports law.  Recent articles have included ones on performance-enhancing substances, the fantasy sports industry, the effects of changing mascots and team nicknames, and the tensions between the First Amendment rights of spectators engaged in "cheering" speech and other parties who may be negatively affected by such speech.


The Sports Lawyers Journal

Tulane's involvement with The Sports Lawyers Journal began in 1993.  Published annually by The Sports Lawyers Association (SLA) and edited by Tulane law students, the SLJ is the most widely read legal sports journal in the United States.  All officers and directors of the SLA serve on the journal's advisory board, and each member of the SLA, currently over 1000 practicing attorneys, agents, law faculty, students and other industry professionals, receives a copy of the journal. The Journal provides a unique view of sports issues and an excellent opportunity for students to have their writing published and recognized by industry professionals.

The Journal's editorial board includes up to ten Tulane students, with a slightly larger junior staff. Junior membership is granted to upper level law students on the basis of a brief submitted during the summer or fall write-on competition.
