Thomas A. Baker III, an associate professor of sport management in the College of Education, was recognized as an SRLA Research Fellow during the Sport and Recreation Law Association’s annual conference, held March 1-4 in Las Vegas.
The designation recognizes scholars’ achievement in legal aspects of sport and recreation-related scholarship. This honor also notes and encourages high standards of research and other scholarship within the organization.
In 2013, SRLA awarded Baker the Young Professional Award for excellence in research, teaching and service devoted to sport and recreation law. This year at the conference, Baker’s former doctoral student Natasha Brison was presented with the same award.
