Belmont University College of Law student Joseph North will be spending a few weeks of his summer on the field as he interns with the team’s Legal Department. During the tenure of his experience, North will be responsible for revising contracts, creating agreement abstracts, attending policy meeting and assisting in charity events, among other things.
As a law student at Belmont, North says he feels very prepared to step into this role. “Belmont’s College of Law has prepared me for this experience by transforming the rigors of law school into a vehicle for professional growth,” North said. “Belmont’s rigorous academic courseload and professional programming compel students to evolve into legal professionals who can add value to an office on day one. Belmont’s commitment to its students’ academic and professional success has equipped me with the knowledge and experience to excel anywhere as a confident legal professional.”
After graduation, North hopes to practice entertainment law with a specialization in music or sports. With an affinity for oral advocacy and trial work, he’s especially interested in representing artists and athletes while pioneering new ways for his clients to financially capitalize on their talents.
“The best part of working with the Titans has been gaining an appreciation for what it takes to successfully operate a professional sports team,” North said. “Everyone at the facility plays an essential role, and each person takes pride in their contribution to the Titans. Even among the longest-tenured employees, there is a sense that no one takes the opportunity to work with the Titans for granted.”
