Several Reasons:A. Networking- Law school is a place where you need networking as never before. Playing on our basketball team provides such networking with fellow students from various years and sections whom you may never have befriended otherwise. Furthermore, we play at Lawyers’ tournaments where you network with students and attorneys from other schools and firms. Obviously, if you’re a good player, you can use your expertise on the basketball court to get noticed by attorneys who shine in the court of law. B. Representing Touro Law Center – Touro Law has been a part of both Lawyers Basketball League and Western New England University (WNEU) School of Law Invitational for years and has reached milestones in each of the prominent leagues. It’s imperative to represent the school and uphold our name in the legal-basketball community. If you have not been on an official school team before, this is your chance to be on one for the first time. If you played high school/college basketball, view this as a chance to continue your legacy. (See FAQ about individual leagues bellow).C. Fun – Aside from being a good workout, basketball adds to relaxation and fun during tough law school semesters.
