Welcome to the 49th Annual SLA Conference

We are pleased to announce the 2024 Sports Lawyers Association (SLA) Annual Conference will take place May 9-11 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront in Baltimore, MD. This year, our conference is centered around the theme "Where Sports and Culture Collide." We believe that the world of sports is not only a source of entertainment but also a reflection of our society's values and aspirations. By exploring the intersection between sports and culture, we aim to deepen our understanding of this exciting field and inspire new ideas and perspectives.

That's why our annual conference serves as a hub for passionate sports law professionals from around the globe. By attending this event, you'll have unparalleled networking opportunities with industry experts, legal luminaries, and fellow enthusiasts who share your passion for sports law.

We hope that you will join us. The Annual Conference will offer a tremendous educational and networking experiences as well as a chance to relax and socialize with friends and colleagues, new and old, from all over the US and the world. I can't wait to see you all!
