Welcome to Sports and Entertainment Law Society!

For those of you who were unable to make our first meeting, this can be your one stop shop for our early semester information.

First off, give us a like on Facebook

We will try to post all of our content that we send out on our social media pages to make it a little bit easier for everyone to get the information and to get it quickly.

Open Board Positions

If you are interested in getting more involved with the inner workings of the board and how the org works, there are a few options. We have openings on the board for Media Coordinator as well as section representatives.

The Media Coordinator will be in charge of updating our social media accounts and managing parts of the website.

Section representatives will come from each of the 4 1L sections and the other 4 upper level sections. They will be in charge of keeping fellow classmates up to date with all things SELS.
