RALEIGH — The Campbell Law School Professional Basketball Negotiations Team recently put on a wonderful performance at Tulane School of Law, said Evin Grant ’16, the team’s coach and former Assistant Dean of Student Life and Pro Bono Opportunities.
“I am extremely proud of our team’s performance. Spring 2022 was the first time we competed in this competition and placed 25 out of approximately 40 teams. To progress to finish among some of the top teams in just a year shows the hard work and dedication this team has to performing at their highest levels. It’s always a joy watching these advocates grow through the competition season and the confidence they exhibit during the difficult rounds.”
The competition team consisted of 3Ls Clare Poston, Garrett Blom, and Kylie Bouplon and 2Ls Jake Blum and Heath Topel rounded out the team as support and practice squad.
The Tulane Professional Basketball Negotiations Competition is a simulated Free Agency negotiation of a real player and uses the current Collective Bargaining Agreement information to develop contracts. Competitors submitted a written presentation followed by three rounds of negotiations and are judged by prominent members of sports law and the NBA industry.
