Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (6/1/2012)

I am certainly going to be paying attention to the formation of Israel’s National Baseball Squad.  I hope Shawn Green blasts some homers in the World Baseball Classic.  Perhaps I should send Ian Kinsler a personal letter requesting that he shows his pride by joining the team.  I have two new Forbes pieces that I hope you enjoy: (1) Football Agent Named Defendant In Three Pending Lawsuits Calls Accusers Desperate and Vindictive; and (2) NFL Agents Operating Under New Rules In The Recruitment Of Prospective Clients. Here are some stories I failed to cover 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.
