UConn Law Assembles Sports & Entertainment Law Career Panel

A quick thank you to the University of Connecticut School of Law’s Arts, Entertainment and Sports Law Society (AESLS) which held its Sports & Entertainment Law Panel on Monday afternoon.  I was privileged to participate on the panel along with New York sports and entertainment attorneys Stewart L. Levy and Michael D. Steger

We discussed a variety of issues concerning careers in sports and entertainment law.  In case you missed the panel, here are few quick highlights of the discussion:

  • Young attorneys should seek mentors to guide them
  • If you can’t immediately land a job in sports or entertainment law, obtain basic legal skills elsewhere, and be ready to transfer those skills to the sports or entertainment industry when the opportunity arises
  • Internships are invaluable - take advantage of these opportunities while you’re in school
  • In a tough job market and a tougher area of law, networking is crucial
  • There are opportunities for sports and entertainment lawyers in Connecticut, not just New York and California

A special thank you to Chris Lisi and Nicole Sotto of the AESLS for inviting me to participate.
