Off to Tallahassee for the weekend (it is the capital of Florida for you non-Geography majors) and then back to Gainesville to move into a new residence for my final year of law school. I sent out the initial batch of invitations to potential moderators and panelists for the 2010 UF Sports Law Symposium. In the invite, no date was specified. As of right now, the tentative date is Friday, January 29, 2010. Mark your calendars, but don’t book your flights until the date is confirmed. For more information about the 2010 Symposium and for an overview of the 2009 Symposium, go to http://www.ufsportslaw.com. I designed the site myself. Also, join the Facebook Fan Page to get updates on the speakers attending, the date confirmation, and other news regarding the future event. The 2009 Symposium was a huge hit and is still talked about by many in attendance and those who watched the live stream across the globe. If you are interested in partnership information, don’t hesitate to contact me. As for stories I missed over the past week:
