Manatt-sponsored Sports Law Symposium Covers Cutting-edge Topics


Manatt’s Sports Law Practice Group sponsored the Second Annual Sports Law Symposium at Santa Clara University on September 8, 2011. Ron Katz, Chair of Manatt’s Sports Law Group, organized the highly successful all-day program — attended by over 200 lawyers, sports business professionals, and law students — which presented keynote speakers and panels addressing four cutting-edge legal issues: concussions, steroids, labor strife and the use of players’ images.

Keynote speakers included DeMaurice Smith, Executive Director of the NFL Players Association; ESPN investigative reporter Mark Fainaru- Wada; Sonny Vaccaro, who perfected the art of athletic shoe endorsements; and Professor and former NLRB Chairman William Gould IV of Stanford Law School.
