The Jeffrey S. Moorad Sports Law Journal is comprised of second and third year law students who were hand-selected for their excellent writing ability, scholarship, and research skills from the Villanova Law Summer Writing Competition.  They are leaders among their peers, respected among their colleagues, dedicated students, adept researchers, and passionate writers.

The Journal was formed in the fall of 1993 under the guidance of former Associate Dean Robert Garbarino.  The Journal published its first volume in 1994 as the Villanova Sports & Entertainment Law Forum after receiving provisional approval from the law school faculty.  In June 1995, the law school faculty granted the Forum approval as a permanent journal.  In recognition of the faculty approval, the Board of Editors changed the name of Forum to the Journal.  The Journal recently changed its format from the Sports and Entertainment Law Journal to the Jeffrey S. Moorad Sports Law Journal to honor the generous donation from our esteemed alumnus Jeffrey S. Moorad.  The online branch was created in 2012 to provide a source of up-to-date research and scholarship on cutting edge legal issues in sports.
