Baseball chief Bud Selig joins adjunct faculty at Marquette U. law school
November 24, 2010
Major League Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig has been named to the adjunct faculty at Marquette University Law School as distinguished lecturer in sports law and policy.
“Bud Selig is, without question, one of the most skilled and accomplished professionals in the sports industry today,” said Joseph D. Kearney, dean of Marquette Law School. “We are truly honored that he would commit his time to our students and grateful that he’s chosen our classrooms as a place to pass down his significant wisdom to the next generation of leaders.”
The appointment formalizes a teaching position Selig has held at Marquette Law School since 2009, lecturing for several classes of the Professional Sports Law course each spring. The course is part of the nationally prominent Sports Law program at Marquette Law School, which is also home to the National Sports Law Institute. Both are led by Marquette Law School Professor Matt Mitten. Selig has been a member of the NSLI Board of Advisors since its inception in 1989.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the lively dialogue with students in the classroom at Marquette Law School over the past several years,” said Selig. “It is very rewarding for me to pass on some of my experiences and hopefully enrich their legal education by discussing sports law and business issues affecting the historical development, structure and operations of Major League Baseball.”
