My name is John Pauley and I’m reaching out to SBfsta because I want to offer any research/lobbying assistance. I am a rising third-year and dual-degree student at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. As I pursue my Juris Doctorate, I am also earning my Master’s in Public Policy & Leadership, and currently serve as President for the UST Sports Law Society. My research during this past year of law school has focused on the intersection of sports law and policy (for example, one project entailed…Prohibition vs. Regulation: Tackling the Policy Issues Surrounding Legalized Sports Gambling—including a focus on the interests of Minnesota’s tribal casinos).
Fair legislation for fantasy/DFS is a primary interest of mine and I will continue this research throughout my final year of law school. I want to offer my assistance on any projects going forward because (1) I truly believe in your cause; and (2) I believe my research and lobbying experience at the state level can benefit SBfsta.
Maybe you’re reading this email and can’t think of a way to include me. That’s fine. But I want to let you know that I’m willing to help if the time ever comes. Thank you.
