We hold speaker events, social events, and sponsor networking trips throughout the year. Last year we sponsored talks with NFLPA Director DeMaurice Smith, gold medal gymnast Nastia Liukin, Dale Cendali (legal counsel for J.K. Rowling), and powerhouse art lawyer Jo Laird, among others.
We also co-sponsored events that brought in attorneys from O’Melveny & Myers to discuss sports and entertainment law in practice. We host panels for 1L’s to learn from our members about obtaining summer jobs at organizations like Major League Baseball, the National Football League, Warner Brothers, Marvel, and more. We host fun social events like our annual softball tournament, viewing parties for sporting events and the screening of Loving, and mixers with our peer organizations at Harvard Business School.
Our premier event is our New York networking trip hosted in the spring semester. The trip features separate sports and entertainment tracks, giving members the opportunity to travel to the offices of the leading sports and entertainment companies and learn first hand from attorneys there about their work. Last year, the entertainment track brought members to meet with attorneys at Sony, Spotify and CAA. The sports group travelled to the offices of MLB, Madison Square Garden, CAA, and the NFL. The groups then met up for a panel discussion with partners in the sports and entertainment groups at Proskauer Rose LLP followed by a networking reception with attorneys in these groups.
