2011 Santa Clara Sports Law Symposium/

Here is a nice event that is free for college students. Apparently, Bill Neukom and some ESPN people are going to be there. This is a great opportunity to network and discuss a topic especially salient since the Buster Posey injury--concussions in sports. Let me know if you're attending in a comment below.
