Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (5/14/2010)

In two hours, I will be on stage at the O’Connell Center (where UF plays its basketball games), officially graduating from University of Florida’s Levin College of Law.  The whole family is in town, which is nice (but rare).  On Monday, I begin studying for the Florida Bar.  As I have mentioned before, other than being a student of Sports Law, I have really enjoyed reading up on Intellectual Property issues.  Here’s one that might be interesting for those of you who share a liking of IP Law.  Dynasty is representing some new players in basketball, including a few that are coming off tremendous seasons overseas and in college.  And the baseball draft is less than a month away.  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.
