St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Curt Flood challenged Major League Baseball’s reserve clause. NFL Players John Mackey, Reggie White and Tom Brady brought antitrust challenges against the National Football League.

For decades, antitrust law has played a significant role in major league sports.  As those battles continue, the fight has also expanded into the NCAA and other leagues.  Learn the current rules of the game – and those likely to change – in this presentation by two lawyers who have been in the middle of many of the battles.

Lunch and registration will begin at 11:45 a.m.; CLE program will start promptly  at 12:00 p.m.
