How the Law is Shaping the Future of Sports From Illegal Hits to the Impact of Antitrust Law on the NCAA
PROGRAM SCHEDULE Sports Summit 2020 How the Law is Shaping the Future of Sports From Illegal Hits to the Impact of Antitrust Law on the NCAA
The legal issues raised in the context of athletic events are unique. Whether you are a civil trial attorney or a transactional attorney, you may face some of these issues even if you don’t focus in “sports law.” Attorney and college professor Gary Chester summons his broad experience as a successful trial attorney, professor and sports reporter to provide thoughtful and entertaining insights into the legal issues that attorneys may confront when handling a lawsuit in the sports context or negotiating a sports-related contract. Attorneys who have a general passion for all things sports will appreciate this detailed overview of the law of sports, as well as Gary’s insights into how recent decisions are reshaping intercollegiate athletics. This exciting program will provide a basic understanding of several areas of the law as they pertain to sports, highlighted by Gary’s vast knowledge of sports history.
Joining Gary will be Indiana attorneys Milt Thompson (President and CEO of Grand Slam III LLC), Scott Bearby (Vice President of Legal Affairs and General Counsel with the NCAA) and Dan Emerson (Chief Legal Officer with the Indianapolis Colts).
