Anybody can become a Sports Agent, you do not have to have a Law Degree.
Sports Management World Wide can teach you to become an Agent.
The Athlete Management course provides the academic foundation for individuals interested in pursuing a career as a sports agent. It is the only sports agent course in the world, complemented by weekly audio chats between instructor and certified NFL agent Dr. Lynn Lashbrook, current SMWW Agents and various certified agents and fellow students.
The Athlete Management course is an overview of the issues involved with athlete management. It is designed as a roadmap of the registration process (required in some states and in the various leagues) and a discussion about the various facets of a subsequent career in the athlete representation field.
