Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (3/12/2010)

It may officially be Spring Break, but this week has been no break for me.  Between visiting clients at Spring Training facilities and meeting with parents of potential future advisees, along with a bunch of other business related tasks, I sure have been able to keep myself busy during what has been a relaxing week in past years.  But no complaints!  Work hard and play hard.  And while I am busting my butt, I still make sure to find time to enjoy myself with friends and family.  I will be speaking on a couple of panels at the St. Thomas Entertainment And Sports Law Society Symposium tomorrow.  If you are in South Florida, come on by!  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:


Sports Law


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.
