Chicago-Kent to participate in the 2016 National Baseball Arbitration Competition
Chicago-Kent students Andrew Bisping '16, Daniel Haze '18 and Mark Reel '17 will represent the law school in the 2016 National Baseball Arbitration Competition January 20 to 22 at Tulane Law School in New Orleans.
The competition, sponsored by Tulane Law School's Sports Law Society, is a simulated salary arbitration competition modeled closely on the procedures used by Major League Baseball. Chicago-Kent's team is one of approximately 40 law school teams from the United States and Canada participating in this year's tournament, which will be judged by a wide range of MLB executives, attorneys and agents.
This marks the fourth consecutive year in which a team from Chicago-Kent has competed. The law school came in second in 2014 and finished in the top four in 2015.
Founded in 1888, Chicago-Kent College of Law is the law school of Illinois Institute of Technology, also known as Illinois Tech, a private, technology-focused research university offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering, science, architecture, business, design, human sciences, applied technology, and law.
