2009 UF Sports Law Symposium Wrap-Up

I have heard nothing but good things from everybody in attendance, both at UF law school and virtually through the live feed, and all speakers and moderators had a wonderful time.  Here is a snippet of what current UF Law 2L, Ian Fisher, wrote about the event on FlaLaw Online:

The founder of ESPN and the former White House communications director spoke at the UF Law School on Friday – and that was just two of about 15 speakers and panelists the day featured.

Prominent figures in the sports law and business world gathered for the 2009 UF Sports Law Symposium, put on by UF Law’s Entertainment and Sports Law Society. Last year, the law school participated in a sports symposium on the main campus.

If you could not attend and did not watch it live online, you still have a chance to watch the symposium.  See below for two videos that document the entire event.

Originally titled, "I Want To Be A Sports Agent," the website was founded with the intention of causing Heitner to learn more about the profession that he wanted to join, meet reputable individuals in the space and force himself to stay on top of the latest news and trends.

Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel.
