How important is what tier law school you go to if you are planning on being a sports agent?

Question by Brad H: How significant is what tier law school you go to if you are planning on being a sports agent?
I definatly do not have the money or lsat score to get into many of the better law programs in the country. But several 3rd and 4th tier law schools have good reputations when it comes to sport and entertainment law. Is it more important to just find a way to get into a law school to learn about contracts, negotions, etc. if you are planning on being an agent.

Answer by ownpool
I am an attorney (currently inactive due to other pursuits). The important and difficult part of being a sports agent is obtaining clients. If you do not have connections in the athletic world, the easiest way to start is with a large entertainment and athletics law firm which requires graduation from a “top” law school. In addition, law school teaches the principles of contract law. Negotiation skills are learned on the job. Again being in a large law firm which gives this training is the easiest way to go.On the other hand, a talented person with connections could develop this sort of practice with a degree from any law school.This very glamourous and competitive area of law is one of the hardest in which to succeed.I hope this answer has been helpful to you. Good luck.
