Do you miss being "between the lines"? Do you miss the thrill of the last second shot? What if you could be a part of the group that makes that moment happen? Front offices of sports related businesses are filled with former and failed athletes as well as those who just love the game. These sports executives once thought, "Do I have what it takes to work within the sports industry"? Once you review what is available to you, you will see that breaking into the front office is not as impossible as you once though.
Whether it is negotiating contracts for players upon the opening of free agency or negotiating enormous television rights contracts with the biggest names in sports across the table, JobsInSports.com presents those opportunities to you.
Of course duties will vary based on the hiring company and the actual position but the following is a general idea of what you can expect to be doing on a daily basis if you enter sports law:
- Review, draft and negotiate player and/or business contracts
- Review marketing materials
- Manage litigation
- Ensure compliance with laws and company policies;
- Provide general legal counseling on topics such as employment, collection matters, consumer warranties, etc.

What if you don't have any Sports Law industry experience?
Remember, the law is the law regardless of the industry. Your education, training and experience outside of the sports industry translates to your next job within the sports industry. The fundamentals will always remain the same. In our ten years of working with hiring managers from sports organizations from around the country, we have rarely seen a listing requiring sports industry experience. Time and time again, sports employers want a competitive personality who is able to take their skills and apply them to the sports industry. Your background is not nearly as important as your desire to work hard and succeed.
