At Seton Hall Law School, we love seeing our students combine their passions with
their professional goals, and nowhere is that more evident than in our Gaming, Hospitality,
Entertainment, and Sports Law Initiative (“GHamES”).
Whether you’re a sports fan, a lover of the arts, a news or media junkie, a poker
player with a mind for numbers, or a life-long traveler, our GHamES initiative prepares
you for a legal career that builds on those interests. Just ask our alumni who serve
as counsel to professional sports teams, leagues, and arenas; sports agents; compliance
officers for casinos and online gaming operators; government regulators; advisors
to major hotel chains and fitness providers; and officers and directors of global
media companies. There truly is no limit to what you can do with your Seton Hall Law
We start in the classroom, providing a robust curriculum taught by experienced and
enthusiastic faculty. Then, because lawyering is about more than just case studies
and lectures, we offer a host of applied learning and networking opportunities including
moot court and negotiation competitions, symposia, speakers’ series, and an array
of externships and internships. Student groups, including the Entertainment and Sports
Law Society and journals, give students important opportunities to engage in research
and writing and to take on leadership and management roles. Finally, when work is
done, our students take advantage of Seton Hall Law’s unique location and proximity
to New York and Atlantic City to relax and access world-class sporting events, concerts,
shows, museums, restaurants, and hotels.
Both in and out of the classroom, the GHamES initiative gives students the foundation
they need to propel themselves into legal careers they find personally satisfying
and professionally rewarding. We hope you’ll join us!
