Shabbat Shalom/Happy New Year: Friday Wrap-Up (12/31/2010)

This is officially the last post of 2010.  If you missed my post from earlier today, please take a moment to check it out.  I wish each and every one of you a very happy, healthy, and SUCCESSFUL New Year.  With heavy labor battles regarding the NFL and the NBA, 2011 will certainly be filled with “Sports Law” related issues that affect players and their agents.  And as the days go by, the MLB will inch closer to the expiration of its Collective Bargaining Agreement, as well.  2010 was a great year.  Let’s make 2011 even better.  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.
