Student Work

Sports Law clinical placements are in a variety of settings, including legal departments of major leagues or sports franchises, and with law firms and lawyers doing sports law in representing individual players, teams, or leagues. Students’ clinical work in the field may include contract and transactional work, arbitration, litigation, research, and writing.

Peter Carfagna, instructor of sports law courses at Harvard Law School, oversees clinical placements and students’ clinical work. Admission in the clinic is by application. Students must have completed or be enrolled in one of Prof. Carfagna’s courses to be eligible to apply.


The Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs provides limited funding to students in the Sports Law Clinic who need to travel to their related clinical placements. This funding is to offset the cost of transportation and housing while off-campus. Read more about the guidelines and how to request funding.

You can view past clinical placements and read evaluations from past clinical students in the Helios Org Search using this link.
