National Football League Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice F. Smith will participate in a discussion on the Role of Unions in Sports and Entertainment.

NOTE: I am using this as a teachable moment to connect my students with practitioners in the field. So several students from my entertainment law class will also attend and hopefully (hint, hint) guest blog about their experiences. 🙂
