Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (5/25/2018)

I’ll lead with an apology for skipping on last week’s Friday Wrap-up. To be honest, the time of day and day of week becomes a blur when you’re half way across the world in Singapore. When you were waking up on Friday, I was probably 3 Tiger beers deep and stuffing my face with spicy crab. Anyhow, it’s good to be back, but I’ll be traveling again to Washington D.C. next week for some NFLPA-related business. I must travel to Washington D.C. no less than 10 times per year. Hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend. Be safe and have fun!

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.
