For Immediate Release

We are proud to announce that Seward Tran LLP DBA Queen City Immigration Law Partner, Sherrod Seward, has officially joined the Sports Lawyers’ Association . Sherrod Seward looks forward to being able to contribute to the national conversation of sports immigration to the greatest legal minds across the country. The Sports Lawyers’ Association’s membership base is worldwide and very influential in the sports law industry. Sherrod plans to be an active member of the organization and is already in consideration to become the Outreach Coordinator for the State of North Carolina.

“Its a great feeling to be in the company of so many great legal minds focused on sports law” Partner Sherrod Seward says who is primarily responsible for sports based solutions for the firm. “ Not only do we learn substantively from members of the group but we make relationships with great people that will last a lifetime.”

The Mission of SLA is three-fold:

  • To provide educational opportunities and disseminate data and information regarding specific areas of sports law.

  • To provide a forum for lawyers representing athletes, teams, leagues, conferences, civic recreational programs, educational institutions, and other organizations involved in professional, collegiate, Olympic, and amateur sports. SLA's role is to foster the discussion of legal problems affecting sports law and to promote the exchange of a variety of perspectives and positions.

  • To promote and, where necessary, establish rules of ethics for its members involved in sports law.

For next steps, Sherrod Seward will host the Sports Lawyers’ Association along with members of other organizations such as the NC Bar Entertainment & Sports Section, Black Sports & Entertainment Lawyers Association, NFL Alumni Association, NBA Players Association & Agents, NFL Players Association & Agents, and the Esports Bar Association
