Job Description for Sports Lawyer

A sports lawyer is a specialized attorney who represents professional athletes, teams, and even coaches. While most work with contracts and some even serve as agents for players, not all in this position are actually licensed attorneys/lawyers. Sports lawyers generally help to establish contractual provisions and make recommendations to their clients, and they may also be called upon to represent a player or team in matters of disagreement over an existing contract. They may also serve as the first point of contact for a player or coach who encounters legal difficulties or represent a player's or team's labor interests in the event of sanctioned disciplinary action separate from a court system.
