Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (10/28/11)

Halloween is on Monday, but most people I know are celebrating this Saturday.  Any good costume ideas?  About to jump into speaking season, as I will be traveling to New York Law School next Friday and then hopping on a flight that night so that I can lend my words to the attendees of Arizona State’s 2nd Annual Conference On Sports & Entertainment Law.  A couple of weeks later, I will be heading to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia to accept my 10 NEXT Award, and I am already calendaring events for the Spring.  Meanwhile, I am staying very busy working on behalf of my excellent clients, updating this website, and teaching a great group of students at Indiana University.  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.
