A Few Big Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Moorman makes learning the law of the sports industry intriguing by having the class participate in real-world activities. One project was to draft a employee contract and negotiate it with the athletic department for a division 1 basketball coach. Another project consisted of being assigned a stance on a troubling subject like paying college athletes, and debating for or against it with other classmates.
I learned the elements of building and negotiating professional contracts in sports, the litigation process and common law set in precedence, and how to argue the pros and cons of different situations on sports.

Advice for students:
You have to be enticed by the legal aspects of sports that are the supporting ground for sports as a whole. Regulations are what guide sports into becoming what we like to watch and participate in. It is very interesting to learn the process of how the sport industry became what it is today.
