Recap of UF Sports Law Symposium on Collective Bargaining Agreements in MLB, NBA, and NFL

Last Friday, I had a terrific time at the University of Florida Levin College of Law participating in the law school's sports law symposium, which was headlined by former MLBPA executive director Donald Fehr and which concerned the collective bargaining agreements of Major League Baseball, the National Basketball. I was joined by a number of contributors to Sports Law Blog and other persons in sports law. Darren Heitner, Adam Bregman, Christie Sanders, Lourdes Cortizo and other members of the UF Sports and Entertainment Law Society did an excellent job organizing the event, a video for which will be available in the near future.

In the meantime, Zak Kurtz of Sports Agent Blog has a terrific recap and analysis of the symposium. Zak details comments raised and positions taken during the panels and also in Mr. Fehr's keynote address. For those interested in the upcoming CBA discussions in baseball, the NBA, and NFL, Zak's article is a must read.
