Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (7/10/09)

Who needs World Swimming Championships when you have the Maccabiah Games to look forward to?  On another note, it is unfortunate, but Oranim has canceled its Winter program this year.  I went to Israel for my first time with Oranim and then went back a year later as a staff member.  I hope that whatever problems they are having (most likely monetary) get fixed in time for next year’s Summer program.  Right now, I am in the midst of Summer final exams and boxing up my room as I prepare to move into a new house for my last year of law school.  I can’t believe that I have one more year left before I close the 7-year chapter of my life that involved Gainesville, FL.  Time sure does fly.  I also can’t believe I’m 24-years-old.  I feel, look, and sometimes act, 18.  Ahh…here are some articles I missed over the past week:




Sports Agents

Social Networking

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.
