The 11 team league has more than 150 participants (lawyers and law students from Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties) playing a 10 game regular season schedule followed by a single elimination playoff tournament. “The best thing has been getting the younger players from Nova, St. Thomas and Miami involved,” Dupree said. “Keeps the league from disappearing and allows younger players to network with established attorneys.”
