Sports Law CLE at PNC Park

We had an outstanding group of presenters at the Pennsylvania Bar Institute’s inaugural Sports Law CLE at PNC Park on July 23, 2012.  Led by moderator Ralph Cindrich, the group included Dan Kunz, Larry Silverman (former in-house counsel for the Pittsburgh Pirates), legendary sports agent Tom Reich and his brother, Sam Reich, a noted trial attorney.  I was honored to be part of this panel.  We had a lively discussion on the NCAA’s imposition of discipline on Penn State and other hot topics in sports law.  To top off the evening, presenters and attendees of the program took in the Pirates’ game against the Chicago Cubs.
The Pennsylvania Bar Institute will be holding another Sports Law CLE at PNC Park on August 15, 2012 beginning at 4:30 p.m.  We have some great presenters lined up to discuss more hot topics in sports law.  Attendees will get 2 hours of CLE, including .5 hours of ethics.  Attendees will also receive a ticket in the Pittsburgh Baseball Club section of PNC Park for that night’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers (additional tickets will be available for guests of attendees).  It’s a great way to pick up your CLE credits and take in our red-hot Pittsburgh Pirates!
