Congratulations to the St. John’s Sports Law Program for winning the 10th Annual National Arbitration Competition!
Jon Fetterolf served as a guest arbitrator for the 10th Annual National Baseball Arbitration Competition. The National Baseball Arbitration Competition, run by the Tulane Sports Law Society, is a simulated salary arbitration competition modeled closely on the procedures used by Major League Baseball (MLB). Like most law school moot court competitions, the National Baseball Arbitration Competition’s main goal is to provide participants with the opportunity to sharpen their oral and written advocacy skills.
It was a pleasure to coach the team, the competition is unique in that it allows law students to sharpen these skills within the specialized context of MLB’s salary arbitration proceedings.
