The application deadline is May 1, 2014 and students requesting summer housing must submit applications by April 15 to guaranteed housing availability.

Upon acceptance into the Great Lakes Sports & Entertainment Law Academy a non-refundable deposit must be submitted within 14 days.
Admission to the three-week coursework session of the Great Lakes Sports & Entertainment Law Academy is open on a first-come, first-selected basis to any law student in good academic standing as determined by their home school and who at the time of the Academy program will have completed the first year of full-time study or its equivalent in part-time study. Notification of acceptance will begin after March 1, 2014. A deposit will be required upon admittance with the balance of your tuition to be paid by May 12, 2014.
NEW IN 2014: In addition to attending the academy in-person, hosted on the campus of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, GLSELA students may choose to complete sports law courses online synchronously, through live video sessions (asynchronous recorded sessions are also available, if necessary). The course’s special lectures will also be made available through the distance learning platform, making the academy’s law courses among the few throughout the country available entirely online. Students will be asked to specify their intended means of participating in the course on the application.
Housing is available throughout the GLSELA on the Cleveland State University campus. Housing costs are separate, and housing must be reserved no later than April 15. For more information, request housing when making your application and further details will be provided.
