This Friday: Charleston Sports Law Symposium

Several of our contributors, including Warren Zola and Timothy Liam Epstein, will be featured panelists at Charleston Law School's Sports Law Symposium next Friday, January 30, 2015. Titled "Under Further Review: A Legal Look at the World of Sports," this one-day conference includes several timely panel discussions on, among other things, NCAA reform and the future of college athletics, concussions, injuries and medico-legal issues in sports, and the interplay between professional sports league discipline and the due process rights of players and owners. Warren Zola will be on two panels (including the one on NCAA reform), and is moderating the panel titled "League Scandals: Disciplinary Powers and Due Process, which features Chicago-based sports law attorney Scott Andreson, sports business and tax expert Robert Raiola, and me as panelists. The keynote speaker of the symposium is Megha Parekh, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars. For more information about the symposium, including how to register, click here. Hope to see you next Friday.
