Arizona State Has Put its Fall 2011 Sports and Entertainment Law Conference on YouTube

The Sports and Entertainment Law Students Association & Sports and Entertainment Law Journal at the Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law has announced that they are now hosting a good portion of their 2nd Annual Conference on Sports & Entertainment Law on YouTube.  The Conference, which I participated in on two panels (“Collective Bargaining Agreements – The Big 4” and “Sports Agent Regulation”), took place on November 5, 2011.

The Association and Law Journal apologize for some errors with the recordings and point out that it was their first time recording a Conference (so cut them some slack!)

(1) 2 of the 7 Panels were not recorded. Apologies specifically to Hamid Jabbar, Elissa Hecker, Connie J. Mableson, Stephen Webb, Timothy Liam Epstein, and Mary Penrose.

(2) Of the 5 recorded Panels, only the right table (facing outward) was recorded. Panelists and Moderators sitting on the left table can be heard, but regrettably, not seen. Apologies specifically to Travis Leach, Caleb Jay, Susan Freeman, and Kellen Bradley.

(3) Of the remaining clips, they were mistakenly recorded at a quality that is decidedly not the 720p we’re all accustomed to.

Here is a video of our discussion titled, Collective Bargaining: The Agent:
