Tulane Sports Law National Baseball Arbitration Competition

Follow along through Twitter! More Information Found Here

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.

You can also watch the proceedings on the YouTube channel Tulane Sports Law and check our their Facebook page Tulane Sports Law Society.

Mark H. McCormack on SBEN

“Business Age said in 1994: ‘McCormack invented the sports business. It was he who first realized that, within the golden triangle of sport, sponsorship and television, lay vast wealth, just waiting to be tapped.'”

Mark H. McCormack, widely recognized as the founder of the Sports Marketing Industry, led IMG for almost 4 decades before his death in May of 2003. McCormack wrote the number one bestseller, What They Don’t Teach You at Harvard Business School, providing street smart advice to a generation of business leaders. This is a talk he gave at Oxford University in the United Kingdom.

At 4pm ET SBEN will be streaming the archived speech Mark H. McCormack gave at Oxford University in 1993. You can watch at new.livestream.com/sben/classics
