Game, set and match for sports law students

Leading corporate law firm Shulmans LLP has teamed up with the University of Law, Leeds, to launch the UK’s first national sports law negotiation competition.

Leading corporate law firm Shulmans LLP has teamed up with the University of Law, Leeds, to launch the UK’s first national sports law negotiation competition.

Available to 16 universities across the UK, the competition will host teams from elite legal schools from around the country.

The 16 teams of two students will compete in mock negotiation scenarios relating to issues that currently affect the sports industry, from negotiating the commercial terms of a sporting event to the resolution of a dispute amongst a professional athlete and his sponsors or employer. All the negotiations will take place in front of a judging panel which comprises 24 industry experts, including representatives from Shulmans, St. Philips Chambers, ASDA, The Sports Consultancy, Synergy Sports Management, Sport Works, Disability Sport Yorkshire, West Riding FA and Mike Riley, the renowned international FIFA referee. The judges will assess the students’ skills throughout the day, before announcing the winning team.

The competition takes place on Saturday 16 April at the University of Law, Leeds.

The lucky winners will be rewarded with a work placement at Shulmans LLP, as well as two tickets to Sport Resolutions’ annual conference on ‘Integrity and good governance’.

Event organiser, Ryan Adams of Shulmans, said:

We are delighted to welcome students from some of the best universities in the UK to the University of Law, Leeds, for this event. Our vision is to make it an annual competition and thanks to an unprecedented level of interest in this inaugural event, we’re confident that in years to come it will be a highlight of the law student calendar, especially those interested in Sports Law.
