Contract Negotiation Endorsements Recruiting Sports Agents Sports Business Sports Law

Sports Dork Symposium 2007

The Sports Lawyers Association (SLA) will be hosting its 33rd Annual Conference in Cambridge, MA from May 17-19.

Calling all sports attorneys, sports agents, sports law professors, sports law students, and anyone else looking to spend a chunk of change to hear some speeches [Here is the official brochure]. This is the yearly event that you have all been waiting for. And don’t worry about the cost of attendance (unless you don’t have a job), it’s all tax deductible. So go search for your best business casual attire and head out to Cambridge for a few days in heaven.

I honestly wish that I could be able to attend, but I will be visiting my religion’s homeland (Israel) on a 10-day Birthright trip. The brochure highlights a lot of very interesting subjects that will be covered at the conference. If you are able to make it out to Massachusetts; however, I would love for you to e-mail me with some of the highlights of your trip.

P.S. – NFL agents, go to the conference to fulfill your Section 3A(4) obligation to “Attend an NFLPA seminar on individual contract negotiations each year.”
