14th Annual Fordham Sports Law Symposium

On March 26, 2010, Fordham Law School will host the 14th Annual Fordham Sports Law Symposium. Harvard will also be hosting its Symposium on that day, so for all of you sports law afficionados, TGIF! While Mike will be moderating a panel at Harvard on CBA issues in the NFL, I will be moderating a panel at Fordham on age restrictions in professional sports. Gabe Feldman will be moderating a panel on sports licensing that Marc Edelman is participating on. Hopefully, you can make one of these events. Both Harvard and Fordham's events are free and open to the public. The details for Fordham Law School's Symposium follows:

The Symposium will take place from 8:30am-4:35pm in the James B.M. McNally Amphitheatre. The event is sponsored by The Fordham Sports Law Forum and the New York State Bar Association.
