My buddy Nate Jones, a fellow 1L at the University of California Los Angeles and owner of JONES ON THE NBA, asked me to pass this along:
UCLA School of Law seeks sports agents (particularly MLB, NBA, NFL) to participate in a panel slated for Thurs., Nov. 13th.
The topic will center around the paternalistic structure of the league-athlete relationship. Through an examination of policy and contractual provisions by which leagues in general tend to assert their dominance, the discussion will consider areas such as right of publicity, intellectual property, moral clauses, salary cap, and minimum age requirements. By looking prospectively to the future of sports agreements, the discussion will also consider how players might increase personal and professional autonomy, particularly in a digital age.
CLE credit may be available for lawyers.
