KJK’s Kyle Stroup Coaches CSU College of Law Entertainment & Sports Law Association Team to Top 16 Finish

March 31, 2023

Earlier this year, KJK attorney Kyle Stroup served as the coach for the Cleveland State University College of Law’s Entertainment & Sports Law Association team of Ryan Willen 3L, TJ Hunt 3L and Bailey Scheck 2L. The team traveled to New Orleans for the Tulane International Baseball Arbitration Competition, finishing the qualifying rounds with two wins and one loss, with the loss coming to the defending champion and eventual runner-up this year, Fordham University. Kyle led the team to a Top 16 finish.

Run by the Tulane Sports Law Society, the Tulane International Baseball Arbitration Competition is a simulated salary arbitration competition modeled closely on the procedures used by Major League Baseball (MLB). Similar to most law school moot court competitions, the competition’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.

Kyle is a graduate of CSU College of Law, where he served as both secretary and vice president of the Entertainment and Sports Law Association. KJK proudly congratulates Kyle and his team on their recent success.
