As part of our desire to create opportunities for learning about sports law practice, our firm provided a virtual internship for law students from May 18 to June 5, 2020,
The internship focused on football employment contracts and what constitutes just cause for termination; sponsorship contracts; and football transfers. There were 36 law students from Nigeria, Kenya, the United Kingdom, and India who participated.
