Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (2/19/2010)

I am down in South Florida yet again (it seems to be a rather normal occurrence in my final semester of law school.  Tomorrow, I will be speaking at the 3rd Annual Nova Southeastern University Sports & Entertainment Law Symposium.  The panel runs from 2:20 p.m.-3:10 p.m. and its focus is on Athletes Overcoming Their Indiscretions.  I’ll be around for a little bit before the panel, so if you will be in attendance, please make sure to come speak to me then.  I will be leaving immediately afterwards in order to make it back to Gainesville in time to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday.  Also, if you are down in South Florida next week, you might want to check out the 2010 Make-A-Wish Ultimate Sports Extravaganza & Auction.  I promised I would have a juicy post first thing Thursday morning – I hope I delivered with the Ed Davis story.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:




  • Arn Tellem’s best post to date, where he says, The awful truth: NBA players would be in a stronger position without a union [Stern und Drang].

Sports Agents

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.

One reply on “Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (2/19/2010)”

Shabbat Shalom Darren! Wishing I could be down in Florida for this conference, but at least will be at the Sloan quantalytics conference in Boston in two weeks…

Glad to make the connection
