St. John's Launches LL.M. in International Sports Practice

Program to launch in the fall

The New York-based St. John's University School of Law has announced that it has re-launched its LL.M. in Comparative Sports Law—which was offered as a joint venture. The new program will be branded an "LL.M. in International Sports Law Practice."

The new program will be delivered over two semesters, covering topics like "US Sports Law," "Negotiation, Mediation, and Dispute Resolution for Sports," and "International and Comparative Sports Law."

In the second semester of the program, students will participate in a "practice placement," where they'll work full-time with a sports organization. In the past, students have done practice placements to work in the NFL, MLS, the NCAA, and other sports organizations, both in the US and internationally.

"Through classroom and hands-on learning, the program prepares participants for the range of work in the global sports law field, including law firm practice, management and legal positions with sports organizations, talent management and representation, and work with players’ unions,” says Ettie Ward, the program’s director.

Since 2012, St. John's had offered the Comparative Sports Law LL.M. with Madrid-based Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economía (ISDE). 

St. John's LL.M. in International Sports Law Practice is set to launch in the fall. It's aimed at both US- and foreign-trained lawyers.
