Major League Baseball Players Association

New York, NY

This is the 2019 fellowship description for this mentor organization.

The MLBPA is the collective bargaining agent for all players who have signed a major league contract with one of the thirty Major League Baseball Clubs. The Association represents those players for all purposes under the terms of the Basic Agreement (the collective bargaining agreement between the MLBPA and the Thirty Clubs), including the filing and processing of grievances, and works with the agents who negotiate the players’ salaries and other added terms of employment. It has a long and proud history of standing up for the rights of its members – past, present and future. 

The Peggy Browning MLBPA Fellow will function much like a law clerk at any other union or union-side firm. He/she will be given a variety of research and writing assignments, depending on then-current demands. Where practical, the Fellow may attend arbitration hearings, grievance meetings, and other meetings with league officials, agents and players.

The Association prefers applicants who will have completed a labor law course prior to the start of their fellowship and an interest in practicing union-side labor law. Typically, an MLBPA Fellow will work full time during the summer and continue on a part-time basis during the fall and spring semesters.  As a result, the Association looks to hire students from New York-area law schools.  The Fellow will be paid $22 per hour and is eligible for overtime.
