Neil Cornrich speaks at Harvard Law School



Spring 2010 Sports Law Symposium – Friday, March 26, 2010

The theme for the symposium is “Operating in the Shadow of Upcoming Collective Bargaining Negotiations.” We hope that each of our panels and keynote address will shed light on the key issues facing each league as it approaches the expiration of its collective bargaining agreement. In addition to discussing the key issues that will need to be resolved to avoid a labor stoppage in each league, we will look to explore how the labor uncertainty is affecting current operations within each league, and how any sort of a labor stoppage might affect the short-term and long-term interests of each league. In exploring each of these issues, we hope to draw from our panelists’ varied backgrounds to fully understand what is at stake for the leagues, teams, unions, players, and other entities close to the game.
