This fall, a group of Harvard Law School students – Ashwin Krishnan ’10, Josh Podoll ’11, and Ryan Gauthier ’10 – will officially launch a new journal called the Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law.

There is “a lot more awareness and student involvement in sports and entertainment law at the law school,” said Krishnan, who worked this past summer with Mike Zarren ’04, assistant executive director of basketball operations and associate counsel for the Boston Celtics.

For its first year, the journal will remain an online-only publication. Krishnan, who will serve as editor-in-chief, said he hopes to publish four to five articles by academics in the field of sports and entertainment law, as well as four to five student authored case comments. Krishnan expects that the journal’s first issue will be published this spring.

Several HLS professors were “instrumental in putting [the journal] together,” added Krishnan, including Professor Emeritus Paul Weiler ’65, Professor Bruce Hay ’88, and Lecturer on Law Peter Carfagna ’79, who will serve as the journal’s faculty advisor.
