In this course, we will focus on the agency relationship, the representation of amateur and professional athletes and the issues lawyers representing athletes face in professional practice. While I will endeavor to cover athlete representation across a wide range of sports, the course will be based primarily on representing current and prospective professional athletes in Major League Baseball and the National Football League. The Course will use some text material, but the weekly reading, class lectures, and discussion will draw primarily from my experiences and expertise as a practitioner and current events in the sports world.
This course will have 7 class meetings. To allow for a makeup classes because of unforeseen circumstances this course has 3 automatic make-up classes scheduled. Students must be able to attend all 10 scheduled meetings to earn credit.
