His extensive experience in sports law includes representing a variety of sports entities while he was in private practice, and he continues to act as a consultant for a number of clients in the sports industry. He is also an Associate Provost for NCAA Compliance.

Feldman joined the Tulane Law School faculty in 2005 after nearly five years as an associate with Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C. Before that, he served as judicial clerk to Judge Susan H. Black of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit in Jacksonville, Fla.

He is regularly quoted in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today and other newspapers throughout the country, and he has made numerous appearances on national television and radio. Most recently, he served as the on-air legal analyst for the NFL Network during the NFL lockout.

He is director of publications for the Sports Lawyers Association; co-authored of one of the leading sports law casebooks in the country, Sports Law: Cases and Materials; and has been published in a variety of journals and periodicals. He also serves on the board of directors of the Sports Lawyers Association and Athletes for Hope, a nonprofit organization created to harness the power of sports to impact social change. He teaches Antitrust, Sports Law, Negotiation and Mediation and Contracts.

In 2013, he received a President's Award for Graduate and Professional Teaching, a Tulane University recognition of excellence in teaching, learning and research.

Current Topic

     03/18 - Making Schools Safe

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion?
The school shooting in Broward County Florida that took the lives of 17 people has reignited the debate over how to make our schools safe. Energized students nationwide are calling for restricted access to certain guns. Congress is considering broader background checks and age limits on gun purchases. President Donald Trump is most enthusiastic about training school staff members to carry concealed weapons.

Where does Louisiana stand in this national discussion? How would gun control proposals affect the 45% of Louisianans who own guns? What mental health services are available to prevent teenagers from acting out violently? What increased security measures should schools take and how much will they cost? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Making Schools Safe” airing Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and WLAE in New Orleans. (Taping Tuesday, March 27.)
