My wish for the New Year is to add more quality writers to the Advocacy for Fairness in Sports blog. Do you have a passion for writing, an interest in sports law and fairness issues, and a desire to have your voice heard? If so, Advocacy for Fairness in Sports is interested in hearing from you. I’m hoping to expand the (unfortunately unpaid) writing staff in order to cover a broader range of issues within the world of sports. While all inquiries will be considered (and appreciated), I feel this would be an especially good fit for law students who are interested in diving into and writing about sports law. I’m currently looking for people with a strong knowledge of or desire to learn about issues within the NCAA, NHL, MLB and NBA. Alternately there may be a certain topic or fairness issue that you’d like to write about. Whether you’re desire is in contributing on a regular basis, occasionally, or submitting a one-time article, please fill out the contact form below, and I’ll be in touch.
Thanks & best wishes for a great New Year!
Sheilla Dingus founded Advocacy for Fairness in Sports in October 2016, after a stint with Defenders of the Wall, a New England Patriots based blog where she dived deep into the legal aspects of Deflategate. Along the way, she observed many inequities in sports and felt a need to address some of the under-reported stories in sports law. She draws from her background as a former professional dancer, who like many of the athletes she writes about, took an early retirement due to orthopedic injuries. After a return trip to college she worked for a legal software company, with seven years as a Project Manager and Analyst. She brings her analytical skills to the table in breaking down complex lawsuits, and enjoys pursuing her longtime interest in journalism.
