Harvard Law School 2010 Spring Sports Law Symposium

I look forward to speaking at this year's Harvard Law School sports law symposium. It will be all-day event on Friday, March 26. Here is some information on the symposium, which is in honor of Harvard Law School professor (and sports law pioneer) Paul Weiler and is open to the public, free of charge:

The Harvard Committee on Sports and Entertainment Law and Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law are pleased to announce the 2010 Spring Sports Law Symposium at Harvard Law School. The event will take place on Friday, March 26, 2010, and is open to the public, free of charge.

The theme for the symposium is “Operating in the Shadow of Upcoming Collective Bargaining Negotiations.” Each of our panels and keynote address will shed light on the key issues facing each league as it approaches the expiration of its collective bargaining agreement. In addition to discussing the key issues that will need to be resolved to avoid a labor stoppage in each league, we will explore how the labor uncertainty is affecting current operations within each league, and how any sort of a labor stoppage might affect the short-term and long-term interests of each league. In exploring each of these issues, we will draw from our panelists’ varied backgrounds to fully understand what is at stake for the leagues, teams, unions, players, and other entities close to the game.
