Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (9/23/2011)

The sports symposiums are starting to sprout up across the country, and I am beginning to formalize my plans regarding which schools I will be attending this Fall.  If you happen to be somewhat near one of the upcoming panels/symposiums, do your best to make it, as they are extremely informative and happen to be great networking events.  I can’t wait to make my return to Gainesville next weekend to see the Florida Gators take on the Alabama Crimson Tide.  We are almost one-fourth through the semester at Indiana University, and the Sport Agency Management class that I am teaching is going great.  More news on my change of legal work to come next week.  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.
