Sports Law Roundtable Featuring Sports Illustrated's Michael McCann: The Donald Sterling Controversy

Friday, August 8, 2014 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Sports Illustrated's Michael McCann leads a panel of sports law experts to discuss the Donald Sterling controversy and the legal, business and ethical issues relating to his impending ouster from the NBA. The efforts to remove Mr. Sterling from the NBA touch upon many different areas of law, including the right to privacy, constitutional law, antitrust law, contract law, tax law, probate law, the rules of evidence, and the extent to which the courts will review the decisions of private associations like the NBA. Join us for a wide-ranging discussion on Donald Sterling and the many issues that his saga poses for the law, business and ethics of sports.

Co-sponsored by the American Bar Association, and the University of New Hampshire School of Law, Sports & Entertainment Law Institute
