hip hop symposium

The West Virginia University College of Law Sports & Entertainment Law Society is proud to present "The Evolution of Street Knowledge: Hip Hop's Influence on Law and Culture," to take place on February 12-13th, 2009, featuring keynote speakers Cornel West and Talib Kweli. The event will occur at the WVU Law Center and is free and open to the public. Sports Law Blog readers will likely be interested in the two presentations that will be given Friday, February 13th, where panelists will examine the impact of hip hop music and culture on professional sports regulation (including the NBA Dress Code and the NFL Non-Celebratory rules).
