Yale Law School Panel on Sports and the Law: Current Issues

Next Tuesday, April 13th, Yale Law School will be hosting a panel discussion titled, "Sports and the Law: Current Issues."

I am honored to be moderating the event, which has some terrific speakers. A wide-range of topics will be covered, including compensation for ex-college athletes and retired athletes; American Needle v. NFL; new media and licensing issues; the effectiveness of revenue sharing, salary caps, and luxury taxes; age limits, drafts, and other restrictions on player eligibility; player safety and neurological issues; personal conduct policies and player discipline, and strategies employed by leagues and players' associations to lobby Congress and respond to Congressional inquiries/threats.

The panel will take place from 6:10 to 8:00 p.m. and is open to any student (please note: a student ID, from any school, is required; the event is off-the-record and closed to non-participating media).

Here are the details:
