Compare: Sports Law Programs

The founder of our site, Kristi Dosh, along with many of our contributors over the years, have attended law schools across the country with sports law programs. After publishing our initial review of the top sports law programs in the country, we decided to provide quick, easy information that allows you to compare programs side-by-side as you make your application and enrollment decisions.
