DESCRIPTION
The Seton Hall Legislative Journal is thrilled to announce its 2021 symposium, Imagining the Future of Sports Law. The two-day event, co-sponsored by Seton Hall Law's Sports, Gaming & Hospitality Program, will convene some of the brightest minds in academia, private practice, and athletics to discuss sport law's most important and hot-button issues.  In 2020, sports took an important leadership role in both the coronavirus pandemic and the social justice initiatives highlighted by the killing of George Floyd. What is next in sports law will undoubtedly foreshadow what is to come in several prominent industries across the United States.  The Symposium will address the future of sports and hospitality, sports gambling, name image and likeness legislation and much more. Be sure not to miss top minds in this fast-changing industry debating and providing solutions on how to enact meaningful change.

CLE Materials
Course materials will be available online (on a password-protected portal) 24 hours before the start of the course. An email will be sent to you before the event providing instructions on how to access the materials electronically.
