On Thursday, February 7th, 2019, the Marquette University Law School Sports Law and Dispute Resolution Societies invite all students to a discussion, The Intersection of Sport and ADR, with Professor Andrea Schneider and Professor Matt Mitten. Marquette University Law School is the home to two of the top programs in Sports Law and Dispute Resolution in the country, and many students choose to pursue the Sports Law Certificate and Certificate in ADR, to be involved in the many sports and ADR competitions, and to be members of the Sports Law and Dispute Resolution Societies while pursuing their law degree. Led by Sports Law Program and National Sports Law Institute Director, Professor Paul Anderson, this discussion will focus on the intersection between sports law and alternative dispute resolution. Professor Schneider’s presentation, Before the Breaking News: How Negotiation Skills Impact Sports Deals, will cover some of the most controversial and interesting sports negotiation news in the last decade. Professor Mitten will discuss Olympics sports arbitration experiences, comparing the AAA and CAS dispute resolution processes, specifically discussing Hyatt v USA Judo (a AAA Section 9 arbitration) and a Sochi CAS ad hoc Division case in which the Canadian and Slovenian teams accused the French of cheating in the men’s ski cross competition), along with a brief overview of the respective systems of judicial review.
This event will begin at 12 pm in room 433. Lunch will be provided to all attendees.
