Apply to the Oregon Summer Sports Law Institute

Our primary goal is to provide learning opportunities for students whose home law schools do not offer significant content regarding sports law. With that in mind, qualified applicants should be in good academic standing and have a strong background or interest in sports and the law.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning in February and continuing through June.

If you have questions about the program or the application process, contact Institute Director Ryan Gauthier.

UO Students:

If you are a currently enrolled student at the University of Oregon School of Law, there is no need to submit an application. Simply register for “Professional Sports Law” and “Amateur Sports Law” just as you would register for any summer session course.

Please also be sure to send Professor Ryan Gauthier a courtesy email to let him know you’ve registered. 


Non-UO Students:

If you are not a current Oregon Law student, you will need to create an account in order to use our online application process. There’s no risk in creating an account. Just click on the “Apply Today” button below and follow the directions.

The process is quick and easy and you can return to your application page at any time (provided you remember your password - but hey, that’s life).
