Leading Authority on Sports Justice to Discuss Major Sports Law Controversies at Rutgers Law School–Newark on April 4
NEWARK, NJ – Sports law controversies involving such issues as the rights of the disabled, amateurism and college sports, transgendered athletes, and the responsibility of leagues for the safety and lifelong health of players reflect not only the evolving nature of sports but of society itself.
These are among the important legal issues that Roger I. Abrams, the author of five books on the business and history of sports, will discuss in his lecture “Hubris, Justice and Sports” at 5 pm on Monday, April 4, 2011 at Rutgers School of Law–Newark. Abrams is Richardson Professor of Law at Northeastern University School of Law and former Dean of Northeastern Law, Rutgers School of Law–Newark, and Nova University Shepard Broad Law Center.
Writing about Abrams’s latest book, Sports Justice: The Law and the Business of Sports (2010), Harvard Business School professor Stephen A. Greyser said: “Deeply grounded in law and relevant to the business of sports, it combines insights and information about issues across the realm of sports that will interest those who manage, participate in, and follow sports.” A book signing will follow the lecture.
Pre-registration for the lecture is required. The program is free for those not seeking Continuing Legal Education credit. There is a $25 fee for attorneys seeking CLE credit – 1.0 CLE credit hour (NJ, NY & PA). Register online at http://law.newark.rutgers.edu/IPEreg.
