Symposium Season In Full Swing
It’s that time of the year again! Sports and Entertainment Law Societies all across the nation are holding their annual symposiums right around this time of the year. If you happen to have a free moment and are not studying or reading cases and are interested in attending a symposium, check the list below to find a symposium located close to you.
Even if you can not attend physically, some of the sites below might still have a live stream of the symposium or a download-able podcast after. I witnessed this first hand yesterday thanks to Darren Heitner at UF. This past Friday’s UF Sports Law Symposium revolutionized the way we can attend a symposium, by airing live through ustream.tv. Hopefully others will catch on so we can all be educated by these great symposiums miles away.
