Marquette Law School “seeks to advance civil discourse about law and public policy matters through public programming such as ‘On the Issues’ conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars, conferences on issues of public significance, the Marquette Law School Poll, and the work of its Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education.
“The Law School’s National Sports Law Institute strives to be the leading national educational and research institute for the study of legal, ethical and business issues affecting amateur and professional sports from both an academic and practical perspective. Its primary emphasis is to provide educational opportunities for law students. The NSLI also provides a national forum for discussion and thoughtful consideration of American and international sports issues and encourages input by persons and organizations with a wide range of viewpoints. The NSLI seeks to promote a legal environment in which sports at all levels of competition will flourish. In an effort to achieve these goals, the NSLI sponsors high-quality national conferences and symposia and promotes knowledge through publication of thoughtful scholarship in the Marquette Sports Law Review. It also serves as a resource for the media and public.”
