First published in 2004, the Willamette Sports Law Journal (WSLJ) was the first sports law journal in the Northwest. The student-run online journal was published when fully staffed each fall and spring through Spring 2016. After 2016, the journal ceased publishing, and it is no longer an active student group. The journal provided students, educators, practitioners and other enthusiasts with timely, well-written commentary and analysis about the evolving field of sports law, with a specific focus on how the law affects leagues, players, colleges and fans. Article topics ranged broadly from Title IX to torts in sports to anti-trust and labor law issues. All published articles are available on Willamette University's Academic Commons (institutional repository).
