The Marquette Sports Law Review is published biannually by students in the Sports Law Program at Marquette University Law School. This year, there are thirty-five student-members who edit Articles for publication as well as Associate Editors who assist with compiling the Survey and Index and edit Articles on an as-needed basis.

The Fall Issue of the Marquette Sports Law Review will be published in December 2015 and will feature several different Articles and student-written Comments on current sports-related legal issues as well as several other pieces like an Essay and a Book Review. Below are the pieces that will be published in December:

As the Editor-in-Chief for the Marquette Sports Law Review, I am very proud of the hard work that our Members and Editors have put in throughout the last semester and am excited to see it pay off once the Fall Issue is published.

Looking ahead to the Spring Issue, the Marquette Sports Law Review will be publishing a Symposium issue focused on the changing landscape and future of collegiate athletics. With so much happening in the NCAA right now, we felt this would be the perfect time to invite lawyers and scholars alike to comment on where the NCAA is headed. We have received a wide range of topic proposals from potential authors, including articles on why the NCAA should adopt a uniform disciplinary policy and on the impact of O’Bannon on female athletes at historically black universities. Submissions are due on December 11th, so the Editorial Board and I will be hard at work over our winter break to get ready for the editing process next semester.

If you are interested in reading the great Articles we are publishing this year, both the Fall and Spring Issues will be available on our repository website after publication. Additionally, you may sign up for a subscription to or order individual Issues of the Marquette Sports Law Review here.
