Course offers hope and guidance!

By Aditya

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful and insightful course on “How to become a Sports Lawyer”. You’re doing a great job by offering some hope and guidance for students like me to consider a career in sports law.
I had signed up for the course a couple of weeks ago and finally found the time to complete it. The ‘Experience’ section of the course was really helpful especially since I’m due to graduate by next week and on the look out for jobs. It’s been a bit hard finding any jobs in the sports space but I’m hopeful that by applying your methods, I should find some success.

Very comprehensive!

By Niek

This course exceeded my expectations as it not only covered the theoretical aspect of sports law but also the practical part on how to actually enter the sports law field. Very glad to have signed up!
