Who’s Driving This Train? (Sports & the Law)
Accredited for Pennsylvania & New Jersey CLE: 6 Credits (4 Substantive/2 Ethics)
Why You Should Attend
The world of sports impacts every family. Someone you know plays sports, enjoys watching sports, or participates in a “fantasy” league. This fascinating glimpse into the real world of sports will examine the NCAA “pay-for-play” legal controversy, the NFL concussion litigation, doping/criminality/domestic abuse and its impact on sponsorship contracts (Lance Armstrong, Michael Vick, Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson), self-policing of athletes vs. policing by courts (“deflategate”), illegal recruiting tactics and their impact on coaches (Louisville), and the laws surrounding sports betting and fantasy leagues.
Explore the emotionally-laden intersection of sports and the law as played out in our communities, on our televisions and in our courtrooms. Start by enjoying a film that highlights the way “big money” influences the laws as they pertain to athletes and how these laws are enforced. Examine real-life cases and legislation while guided by the experienced leadership of sports law professor Kenneth Jacobsen, an internationally- recognized expert in the field of sports law, lawyer for Michael Vick and owner of a minor league baseball team.
Experience top-tier education in a relaxed “coffee-house” atmosphere and enjoy delicious cappuccino, a gourmet brunch with home-baked goods, and live music (all-inclusive with your lecture fee). Discover that earning your CLE credits can be a great experience!
