Sports Law & The MIT Sports Analytics Conference

This week, the 9th Annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference will take place in Boston. This event has become one of the absolute best sports conferences of the year, attracting some of the biggest names in the industry. This year's edition is one of the strongest ever, with a lineup of panelists and an agenda that will make news while educating those lucky enough to attend. [Note: this conference typically sells out months in advance.]

And, allow me to promote the contributors of the Sports Law Blog just a bit, as several of us will be participating.

1. I'll be moderating a panel entitled "Amateurs or Industry: NCAA Reform" and the hardest working sports lawyer, our own Editor-in-Chief Michael McCann, will be on the panel with me....correcting my mistakes.

2. Our own Ryan Rodenberg will be on a panel titled "Book It: Legaling Sports Betting" which promises to be one of the hottest topics at the conference.

I also believe several of our other contributors (Daniel Wallach & Jimmy Golen among others) will be in attendance.

Finally, the best news is that if you aren't able to attend this conference, the good folks at MIT will post videos of ALL of the panels in due course so you'll be able to watch and enjoy in the future.
