Sports Licensing

Spring 2020 • Law 696 • Credits: 1

Instructor: Paul Loving

During two full-day deep dives, students learn to dissect and interpret _ and therefore how to draft and negotiate _ sports licensing agreements. Paul Loving, chief American counsel for adidas on matters related to sports and entertainment law, takes students on a hands-on, in-depth tour through some of the deals and agreements that he negotiated while an in-house lawyer for Nike, as well as several UO sports contracts. This course is ideal for students interested in a career in either IP generally or sports and entertainment law specifically, as well as for anyone who wants a better understanding of how to draft contracts.
