Fall 2013 Update

Thank you for all the inquiries and applications in connection with the (up to) two PhD slots for Fall 2013.  Both positions have been filled.  Please see post below for details.  When time permits, I will post details about potential Fall 2014 positions.

Funded Opportunity for PhD Student in “Sports Law Analytics”

Starting Fall 2013, I will be be able to sponsor 1-2 new PhD students here at Florida State University (“FSU”).  New students studying under my supervision would be funded for at least three years (assuming reasonable progress each year), which includes a teaching appointment (undergraduate sports law course), a research/living stipend, a teaching/research assistant position, and tuition remission.

PhD programs in this field usually take 3-5 years.  As such, it is a considerable investment in time and may carry with it significant opportunity costs.

The phrase “sports law analytics” is in quotes for a reason…there is no doctoral degree (that I am aware of) in such a topic.  In my mind, “sports law analytics” is the application of quantitative methods to legal issues in the sports industry.  The actual degree program here at FSU would result in a PhD in “sport management.”  However, like I did several years ago when I was a doctoral student at Indiana University, a PhD student studying under my supervision would take coursework that lends itself to being able to take a quantitative look at legal issues in sports.  Graduates would be capable of publishing research in peer reviewed academic journals and law reviews.  Papers included in my Google Scholar profile are illustrative.

The ideal candidate would fall under one or both of the following categories: (i) someone who is a graduate of an ABA-approved law school with a documented interest in sports law and some degree of statistical acumen/interest or (ii) someone who holds an undergraduate or graduate degree in math or statistics and can demonstrate an interest in sports law issues.

All candidates must be proficient in either Bluebook or APA.  Experience with Stata and/or Excel is desirable.

The foregoing is not meant to be an exhaustive explanation of the PhD program or its component parts.  If you are interested, please contact me for further details.
