We are excited to announce that we, and our presenting sponsor the Heisman Trust, will be hosting the Sixth Annual Penn Law Sports Law Symposium, on Friday, February 22, 2019.
Our annual symposium establishes a forum in which students, academics, and professionals interact to discuss and explore the unique changes, challenges, and opportunities that the sports industry faces as it emerges as a multi-billion dollar industry. This year we examine how athletes, both individually and through their unions, have empowered themselves as individuals. Our one-day symposium will provide perspectives on the modern athlete's push for fundamental social rights, labor protections, and economic independence through the following three expert panels:
The event will feature some of the top names in the sports and entertainment industries, including: Former NFL Player, Chris Kluwe, Former NCAA Division-1 Basketball Players, Haley Videckies and Layana White, NBA Agent, Sam Permut, Founder of Heitner Legal, Darren Heitner, and Professor Marc Edelman, among many other extremely well respected practitioners and academics. Please see the ticket link below for a full list of our speakers and the agenda.
I was hoping that you could help me spread the word around to the Sports Lawyers Association, as well as any other interested attorneys or academics. Tickets for attorneys/professionals cost only $50! In addition to access to the three panels and a keynote address, a ticket also includes a catered breakfast, lunch, and a cocktail and networking reception at the end of the symposium.
The Symposium has also been approved for 4.5 substantive CLE credits for Pennsylvania lawyers, though we are expecting to ultimately be approved for 5.5 substantive CLE credits. The CLE credit may be available in other jurisdictions as well. Attendees seeking CLE credit should bring separate payment in the amount of $180.00 ($90.00 public interest/non-profit attorneys) cash or check made payable to The Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania.
Tickets for the Symposium can be purchased at the below link.
