Sports & Entertainment Law Society
Sport and Entertainment Law Society (SPENT) is an organization for students with an interest in Sport or Entertainment Law. Our goals include keeping members up-to-date with current sport and entertainment industry happenings, meeting and learning from industry professionals, and sharing a common interest with other RWUSOL students.
SPENT hosts Student/Faculty Jeopardy as well as an annual Halloween party. In addition, expect SPENT to host speakers and events related to the sport or entertainment industry. For example, SPENT hosted a Yankees-Red Sox rivalry event in April 2009. Learning about the industry and keeping up with industry happenings are all a part of SPENT.
If you have an interest in sports or entertainment and how the law might play into these thriving industries, then SPENT is for you!
