Thanks to the competitors and guest arbitrators who participated in the 11th Annual International Baseball Arbitration Competition, and thanks to Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association for their continued sponsorship of the event.
TRADITIONAL COMPETITION REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. SEE BELOW FOR WRITTEN-ONLY COMPETITION REGISTRATION.
The Tulane International Baseball Arbitration Competition, run by the Tulane Sports Law Society, is a simulated salary arbitration competition modeled closely on the procedures used by Major League Baseball (MLB). Like most law school moot court competitions, TIBAC’s main goal is to provide participants with the opportunity to sharpen their oral and written advocacy skills. However, the competition is unique in that it allows law students to sharpen these skills within the specialized context of MLB's salary arbitration proceedings. The competition is held annually in the early part of the spring academic semester at Tulane University Law School. Additionally, at the conclusion of the arbitration competition, Tulane’s Sports Law Society hosts a panel of experts to discuss legal issues related to baseball.
Please check out Craig Calcaterra’s (NBC Sports) and Jerry Crasnick’s (ESPN) coverage of the competition:
