I do not believe there is a required amount of education or a license to be a sports agent. Anyone can allow you to be their agent and negotiate for them if they want. However, because of the skills needed to perform the tasks, and what the industry and prospective clients would expect and have confidence in someone representing them to have, most agents are attorneys. Frequently with specialized legal training in that area - employment law, sports or entertainment law, maybe accounting too. Hence: At least an undergraduate degree sufficent to get one into a Law school, then complete and obtain a Law degree (generally a J.D), and then some advanced certification in the field. finally, the personality to attract clients and succeed in getting them good deals and manage/promote their affairs - perhaps well after they leave sports and enter a business or other type of field.
