The Arizona Republic recently reported that Arizona State University's top two quarterbacks, Taylor Kelly and Mike Bercovici are among 20 students accepted into ASU's new Sports Law and Business program. They will earn a master of legal studies degree after taking 18-21 credits with the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law and 6-9 credits from the W.P. Carey School of Business.
"I want to be around sports," Kelly said. "Maybe a sports agent, maybe sports business. You never know with the connections you're going to get in that department and Ray Anderson being part of it. It's going to be awesome and a great experience."
Courses include: Sports business strategy and industry dynamics, negotiations and drafting in the sports industry and problems in professional sports law and business.
Professor Rodney Smith, former president of Southern Virginia University, is directing the program.
Smith, who has an extensive background in sports law said, "The students are going to leave this program well versed in where sports is headed."
