2019 – 2020 Editorial Board


Cole Wood  |  Editor-in-Chief

Cole is a third-year law student and the current Editor-in-Chief of the Mississippi Sports Law Review. His hometown of Starkville, Mississippi is also the home of his undergraduate university, Mississippi State University, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science in 2017. Unsurprisingly, he has a big heart for the Bulldogs, but that never hindered his decision to come to the University of Mississippi School of Law and follow in the footsteps of so many great attorneys. Moreover, because he grew up in a college town, Cole naturally developed a strong interest in sports. He especially enjoys attending Mississippi State sporting events with family and friends. He looks forward to the MSLR having a great year.
