8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, the W.P. Carey School of Business, and the Department of Athletics will hold their annual conference on March 12-13, 2015 at the Ed and Nadine Carson Student Athletic Center on Arizona State University Campus.

In this conference, we will look at the future of the sports industry, including intercollegiate, amateur and professional sports. We will focus on the coming decade in intercollegiate and amateur athletics on day one, March 12, 2015. We will then turn our focus to professional sports on day two, March 13. We will examine regulatory (legal), revenue (business), and reputational (concern for brand) issues in each session of the Conference. In doing so, we will look at various perspectives, including the interests of management, athletes and the broader public.

The focus on regulatory, revenue and reputational issues captures the problem-solving themes of the sports law and business program at Arizona State University. The curriculum is offered jointly by the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, directed by faculty member Rodney K. Smith; and the W.P. Carey Graduate School of Business, where Professor Michael Mokwa helps guide the program.  The program maintains a strong working relationship with ASU’s athletic department, directed by Ray Anderson.  Collectively, the belief is that emphasis on the three R’s that are implicated in all major decisions in the sports industry, will determine the future of professional, intercollegiate, and amateur sports in the coming decade. It promises to be an exciting conference, drawing on insights from leaders in the sports industry, speaking from many perspectives regarding the coming decade and the future of professional, amateur and intercollegiate sports in America, and globally.
