History & Vision of the National Sports Law Negotiation Competition
The annual National Sports Law Negotiation Competition (NSLNC) is hosted and organized by the Center for Sports Law & Policy (CSLP) at Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California, every September.
The NSLNC was created by sports and academic professionals with law students in mind as they enter the legal community. The NSLNC’s purpose is to give back to law students a great experience, competition, and place to meet like minds in the sports law industry. Our mission is to provide the sports profession with able and ready legal minds through negotiation competition training.
The fact patterns for the Competition are modeled toward current issues in the sports industry. Student competitors negotiate select fictional disputes in an academic setting in front of a panel of judges. The fact patterns negotiated allow students to focus on more than one area of sports law, including: contract negotiation, trading of players, salary demands, endorsement contracts, athlete and sports professionals family and personal issues, intellectual property, and more.
It is our hope that you enjoy the yearly competition weekend, which includes a weekend of social activities, the competition, and of course meeting future lawyers, agents, current sports professionals, and judicial officers from across this great Country, and the World, in America’s finest city, San Diego, California.
