Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (7/17/09)

I am done with Summer law school finals.  Business Orgs and Analysis & Drafting of Intellectual Property are out of the way…although I really enjoyed taking and learning the material for both classes.  I cannot believe that in one-year from now, I will be done with law school and studying for the Bar Exam.  I am about to begin preparations for the 2010 UF Sports Law Symposium.  2009’s symposium was off the charts…2010’s will be even better.  Dynasty will be announcing at least 1 more addition to its baseball division next week.  We are also working on placing some basketball players overseas.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:




Sports Business


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.
