As we prepare to watch the rare Tuesday night football game, the Buffalo Sports and Entertainment Law Society is pleased to announce some exciting opportunities this upcoming week! We are pleased to announce two Round Table Discussions this Thursday, October 15th, and Tuesday, October 20th.
On Thursday, October 15th at 5:30 pm, we will have a Round Table titled “NCAA Administrators Talk Shop: COVID, NILs & Competition” to discuss the effects of COVID and name, image, and likeness legislation in NCAA athletic departments. We are excited to be joined by special guests that are in athletic departments all around the country to talk about their experiences dealing with the changing landscape of the NCAA. The special guests include:
– Paul Perrier ’08, USC Deputy Athletic Director
