Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (5/29/09)

If you are looking for some fun in the sun, now is not the time to travel to Florida.  Over the past week and a half, there has been only one day where the sun peaked its head out of the clouds, and that was only for roughly three hours of that day.  Bad weather means no excuses for getting work done!  I am taking two classes over summer: Business Organizations and Analysis & Drafting Intellectual Property Transactions.  For Business Orgs, I am writing a term paper on a sports agent’s duties to athletes and the statutory regulations thereof.  The MLB Draft is quickly approaching.  Lots of work being done behind the scenes.  Also, we may have some exciting Super Bowl event news to publish in the next month.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:

By Darren Heitner

Darren Heitner created Sports Agent Blog as a New Year's Resolution on December 31, 2005. 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 now runs Heitner Legal, P.L.L.C., which is a law firm with many practice areas, including sports law and contract law. Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel. He has also served as an Adjunct Professor at Indiana University Bloomington from 2011-2014, where he created and taught a course titled, Sport Agency Management, which included subjects ranging from NCAA regulations to athlete agent certification and the rules governing the profession. Heitner serves as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where he teaches a Sports Law class that includes case law surrounding athlete agents and the NCAA rules.

With the draft less than two weeks away, are you going to publish your client roster for the draft.
Who will you be adivising through the draft process?
I think it would be interesting to give some insight on how the whole process take place.

I probably will not be publishing the list of players we are advising. It is still not set in stone. In all likelihood, we will pick up at least one more player to advise before the draft. Also, we will receive calls during the draft from players and families looking for help.
Additionally, we need to be very careful to make sure that we do not jeopardize anyone's NCAA eligibility.
