Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (2/18/2011)

Happy Birthday to my mom, Gloria Heitner, who has to be the most amazing woman in the world.  New Orleans was a great time and Tulane put on a fantastic event.  Tomorrow, I will be speaking on a panel at the Nova Southeastern University Sports & Entertainment Law Symposium titled “Family Managing an Athlete’s Career.”  I will be able to discuss quite a bit regarding what I wrote in an upcoming Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law article titled, Closing the Cam Newton Loophole, a Sweeping Suggestion.  I have been attending quite a bit of hearings lately and taking a lot of depositions.  So I guess this is what life as a lawyer is all about.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:

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.
