It’s direct competition with the UF Sports Law Symposium only because it will be held on the same day.  But at the same time, it is on the complete opposite side of the country, and I doubt that many people on the west coast will be traveling all the way to Florida for our event.  Thus, I bring you information about the University of Oregon’s “Sports Business and the Law” conference.
