Hot-Button Issues in Amateur and Professional Sports
April 19, 2018 | 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Temple University Center City Campus
1515 Market Street, Philadelphia
This is not your typical Continuing Legal Education program. While deep in substance, “Game On” is an assembly of expert panelists at the top of their fields who will probe controversial issues that appeal to both the casual and die-hard sports fans alike. Drawing on their personal experiences and perspectives, these elite experts will cover some hot-button issues as recent criminal indictments that have rocked the world of college sports, displays of protest by professional athletes at sporting events, Commissioner authority to punish wayward professional athletes, sports team relocation, public financing of stadiums, and the “good, the bad and the ugly” of sports agents. Come learn…and be entertained.
The program will feature lunchtime keynote speakers David Cohen, Esq., Former General Counsel of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Neil Hartman, Vice President Sports Programming, The Workshop; former Anchor, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. They will share their personal insights on current—and often controversial—legal issues confronting the sports industry.
Following the program, there will be an opportunity for lawyers, panelists, law students and other attendees to network at a reception. Light refreshments will be served. The reception is complimentary for CLE participants.
