EUGENE, Ore. — The University of Oregon just wrapped up a first of its kind summer institute dedicated to sports law.
It’s an effort to marry sports and education in Eugene.
Over the last five weeks, students from all over the country from different colleges, got to hear from some of the best in the business, like Brian Halloran, a former member of the NCAA Division 1 Committee on Infractions. He oversaw nearly all of the major cases over the last 10 years.
“I think it is really an up and coming area of law. More and more jobs are created and its also a fascinating area of law,” Halloran said.
“I think it is going to be a great opportunity and it is only going to grow that it’s the first year we get to be a part of something that is brand new and I don’t think any other university is doing this,” said student Ryan Rourke.
