Spain's Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economía (ISDE) and Columbia University have announced the launch of a new joint-degree program with a focus on sports law and sports management.

The new program combines ISDE's LL.M. in Global Sports Law with an MS in Sports Management from Columbia.

Beginning in the fall, students will spend 12 months of classroom study in New York City, before moving on to a 4-month long internship with a sports organization in the United States, Europe, or elsewhere.

The curriculum in the new program covers a variety of topics in sports management and law, with classes like "Globalization of Sports," "International and Comparative Sports Law," and "Leadership and Personnel Management in the Sports Industry," among others.

The internship component begins in July, August or September, depending on the needs of the host organization. Internships last at least four months and may be extended for longer periods.

In the past, ISDE LL.M. students have done internships with organizations such as the Court of Arbitration for Sports and the World Doping Agency, as well as with law firms like Squire Patton Boggs.
