SELS – Intramural Softball

Law Students, Faculty, and Staff,

Nothing says summer like intramural softball!  I am the President of the Sports and Entertainment Law Society and getting a softball team together for law students, faculty, and staff to play in if they are interested.  Below is some more information about the softball league.


A list of the softball rules will be emailed to all people interested in playing.  Several games are played during the regular season.  All teams will make playoffs as long as they do not forfeit a game.  Nine people play at once, so the first people to get back to me will have priority playing.  Since everyone’s summer schedule varies we will need extra players on the roster when the first people to sign up need to miss a week.


Every game you play in will cost one dollar.  This will cover the team fee of $60.  If the amount goes over $60, then the extra money will be spent towards an end of the season pizza party.

League Dates and Times

The official league dates and times have not been set by intramurals sports, but they said we will either be in a league that plays Monday or Tuesday nights.  Rainouts for Monday games will be played on Wednesday and Rainouts for Tuesday games will be made up on Thursday.  Games will be played at 5pm, 6pm, and 7pm and will last about an hour.  People who are interested in playing will be contacted with the official league date and time.

Signing Up

If you are interested in playing please contact me ASAP at and let me know if you have any conflicting times class times with possible league games.  It is free to sign up on the roster, but spots are on a first come first serve basis.  It would be better to have more than enough people sign up, since there is no costs to sign up, you only have to pay a dollar for each game you play in.

Welcome to Akron Law’s New FIT FOR LAW!

What is Fit for Law?

 The Fit for Law program coordinates the events the law school offers for mental, physical, emotional and financial health under one heading. The ongoing programs will be established as a series. The end of each semester will culminate with a Law School Recess for the students. The recess will provide physical activities, healthy snacks, and a chance for students to bond.

 Is this is a Student Organization?

No. The Sports and Entertainment Law Society has volunteered to sustain the series. This program series is titled to incorporate all of the existing programs at the Law School and create a centralized place for information about the programming. Our vision is to demonstrate how taking care of yourself doesn’t require a total lifestyle overhaul. Even small things can lift your mood, increase your energy, and make you feel like you’re back in the driver’s seat. Take things one step at a time, and as you make more positive lifestyle choices, you’ll soon notice a difference in your stress level, both at home and school. The programs offered by the Law School and student organizations work to produce happy lives, reduce stress and create better study habits.

How are Fit for Law events coordinated?   

 The events are already in existence. The Fit for Law program series gathers the information from programs that are conducted by various student organizations and offices at the Law School. SELS will coordinate the Law School Recess.

 What types of activities should be posted on Fit for Law?

 Any activities that promote student health and fitness- whether it is physical, mental, financial, or social health should be posted on Fit for Law. Examples of such activities include service projects, such as Akron Law Cares, social opportunities, such as watching the national championship basketball game together or putting together an intramural sports teams.

 How do I arrange to post events on “Fit for Law”?    

 Simply e-mail Assistant Director of Admissions & Student Affairs Ivy Washington-Marshall at to request posting. Email the posting exactly as you wish it to appear and include contact person’s name and email address in the posting so that questions may be directed to the most appropriate person.
