Course Description
This course will provide students the opportunity to explore and experience scenarios faced by practicing lawyers representing clients in the sports industry, specifically in esports. Students will learn about all aspects of the esports industry and will learn to draft and negotiate esports contracts, represent clients, and work in organizations. Students will also explore and experiment with different negotiation strategies.

Overall, the goal of the course is to expose students to skills and considerations in the practice of representing clients who operate in the esports industry and, in particular, through discussing various current and recent esports and sports law readings, how to anticipate and address issues that present themselves in practice.
