I apologize for the delay in posts, but I have had an extremely busy schedule as of late between school, an internship, and a new position with the ABA Sports Division.
With that said, I wanted to make sure and get back on track with TASL and give you all an overview of a great event I recently attended in Denver, Colorado. As you may know, there are a few national associations that deal with sports law in particular and that strive to inform others of happenings in sports law as well as provide networking opportunities for professionals and aspiring professionals seeking to break into the sports industry. One of these organizations is the Sports Lawyers Association.
The Sports Lawyers Association is a great resource for legal professionals interested in sports law and provides an experience that is sure to assist in making the right connections which can lead to numerous opportunities.
Not only is the professional networking unlike any other events I have had the opportunity to attend, but the panels, speakers, and events are one-of-a-kind. The SLA Conference also provides an opportunity to mingle and meet likeminded people who are trying to—and likely will—find their place in the sports industry.
An event like the SLA Conference is also exactly what potential employers are looking towards when they speak with aspiring professionals. Attending these events not only provides networking and learning opportunities, but it shows that you are taking the initiative to integrate yourself into a highly sought after professional community.
Do yourself a favor and make it a point to attend this conference at some point during your law school career or future professional career—you won’t regret it!

As always, thank you for reading and God Bless!
