Professor Daniel Lazaroff of Loyola Law School Los Angeles and director of his school's Sports Law Institute, passes along the following info about what should be an engaging and provocative sports law symposium:

* * *
On Friday, January 18, 2008, the Loyola Sports Law Institute and Loyola Law School will be presenting our fourth annual symposium. This year's event is entitled "Discrimination Issues in Sports: Race, Gender & Sexual Orientation." The symposium will begin at 8:30 A.M. and run until 3:45 P.M. We think it will be an informative and enjoyable event.

The race discrimination panel will include Dusty Baker (Manager, Cincinnati Reds), Bill Gould (Professor, Stanford Law School) and Ken Shropshire (Professor, Wharton School). The gender panel features Anita DeFrantz (IOC Member), Nona Lee (V.P. and General Counsel, Arizona Diamondbacks), Jacqueline Michaels (OCR, U.S. Dept. of Education) and Kim Ng (V.P. and Ass't G.M., Los Angeles Dodgers). The scheduled sexual orientation speakers are Jim Buzinski (, Karen Doering (Senior Counsel, National Center for Lesbian Rights) and Claire Williams (Graduate Teaching Ass't, Ohio State University).

Beginning on Thursday, November 29, 2007, access to registration will be available online at this link. I would greatly appreciate it if you would share this information with your colleagues and students. We will admit students from any law school at no charge, Others will be required to pay $50 for the symposium and lunch ($70 with 5 hours of MCLE credit).

I am just a fan a little confused the baseball league is a prvate entity what does the federal government have to do with the agreement that the players have with the baseball league the drugs as far as i can see are not illegal if i want to use them i think the problem is that the commisioner can not police the organization that he is the head of the needs to find what ever test can be done as far as i can tell no one has a fool proof test so tarnishing the reputations of the players i would not be surprised if the players went on strike after the mitchell report fiasco the only legal action i see is civil one between the baseball league and the baseball players

sincerly disappointed in the commisioners offie of baseball
