Chicago Sports Law Event Featuring ESPN's Lester Munson

If you're going to be in the Chicago area on July 30th, I encourage you attend a sports law networking event at the offices of Foley & Lardner. A 90-minute panel, moderated by ESPN's Lester Munson, will offer an in-depth discussion of the leading sports law controversies of the day. Topics covered will include the regulation of on-and-off-field conduct, player discipline, the Washington Redskins trademark controversy, the changing legal environment of college athletics, the emergence of daily fantasy sports, and the legalization of sports gambling. There will be a 30-minute networking reception prior to and at the conclusion of the event, followed by an offsite gathering at a local area restaurant.
