Matthew’s Answer

To be frank, I am not sure about the university you are speaking of. However, I know University of Baltimore Offers a sports law class, headed by the former dean of the law school.

It is also important to note the area in which you want to practice. Baltimore from my experience has a limited market, and from my knowledge there is one agency that controls the sports agency world.

This answer does not create an attorney client relationship and if you need more answers, I would consult another attorney.

Good Luck!

Hey Victor,

What a great industry and great question.

My advice - Don't get hung up on the University. The location from where the degree comes from means little to nothing to any athlete. All that is worried about is the recommendations of coaches, former/current athletes and attorneys. I would get the degree from which ever school is closest to you and the cheapest route.

While in school, your main focus should be networking, networking, networking!! Your college will have connections. Your college will have athletes. Your college will have law schools. You should start to become best friends with all involved in those areas, as they will be your in to sport agency. Ask for opportunities to meet other agents. Seek out internships and volunteer on sports teams in any way. Your time spent with them will become your biggest advocate.

Best of luck!
