"The Women in Sports Law Symposium is an opportunity for law students to see the importance of diversity and women-leadership in male-dominated spaces like the sports industry. The goal of this event is to spotlight and learn from the women [and men] who join us as accomplished lawyers and professionals in sports.”
- Hannah Holmes, Tulane Law School '21

Additionally, I was involved with the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and served as the Stanford representative to the Pac-12 Student-Athlete Leadership Team. These experiences, along with working for the Women’s Sports Foundation, were catalysts for my desire to pursue sports law. I am particularly interested in expanding access and resources for playing and watching, especially for collegiate and Olympic sports.
This past summer I worked as law clerk for the Office of the Athlete Ombuds within the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee. At Tulane Law, I am pursuing the Certificate in Sports Law, serve as a law clerk for the Tulane University Legal Assistance Program, and this fall, am a compliance extern for the Sun Belt Conference.

I graduated from the University of Virginia in 2018 with a degree in Media Studies and Sociology. At UVA, I worked with the football and women's basketball teams as a head video manager.
After graduation, I joined the athletic department at Georgetown University where I was Marketing Assistant before moving to the women's basketball staff as the Director of Video Operations in 2019. In this role, I had the opportunity to attend the Women Leaders in College Sports annual conferences, as well as other Big East events aimed at promoting women in sports. These experiences pushed me to pursue a career in sports law and to continue working towards greater opportunities for women in sports.
