  • Description

    The legal issues surrounding sports, from the college level all the way to professionals and the Olympic players, are shockingly complex. The issues go above and beyond players and teams and relate to images and likeness, college sports and names, risk management and most recently, the 2020 Olympic Athletes Empowerment Act. This CLE course will address these issues as well as the impact that COVID-19 has had on sports and athletes.
