Sports Law in Malibu

It is my pleasure to announce that the Pepperdine Law Review will host a Sports Law symposium on Friday, April 5th, 2013.  The event, titled The New Normal in College Sports: Realigned and Reckoning, will take an in-depth look at various issues in the ever-evolving world of college sports.  The current schedule of distinguished panelists reflects a wide-range of expertise, such as:  scholars Michael McCann, Matt Mitten, Daniel Lazaroff and others (including little 'ole me); broadcast professionals Andrew Brandt and my own colleague Roger Cossack; and other panelists with unique NCAA  and conference leadership perspectives such as Brian Halloran and Britt Banowsky.  If that's not enough, I submit for your consideration a link to the historic, average temperature in Malibu on April 5th.   Have a wonderful weekend, and I'll see you in April!
