Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (5/11/2012)

This week’s Friday Wrap-Up is coming to you from rather chilly (at least for a South Florida resident) San Diego, California, where I am participating at the Sports Lawyers Association annual conference. The discussion is always enjoyable, but I find the best part of the event to be seeing a lot of friends in the industry and meeting new ones, as well. Next year’s conference will be in Atlanta, Georgia. If you are not at this year’s event, I strongly encourage you to calendar next year’s as soon as possible. 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.
