Daniel Wallach Participates in Sports Illustrated Panel at UNH School of Law

On March 5, 2015, the University of New Hampshire School of Law’s Sports and Entertainment Law Institute hosted and co-hosted a panel with Sports Illustrated on recent controversies and legal developments in professional sports leagues’ personal conduct policies. The event, titled “Justice or Kangaroo Court Rethinking Personal Conduct and Fair Play Policies in Professional Sports Leagues,” centered on how the professional sports leagues respond to misconduct that occurs off the field, most notably the controversies involving Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice and Donald Sterling.  B&P shareholder, Daniel Wallach, was one of seven panelists for this event. Joining Dan on the panel were Michael McCann (the legal analyst for Sports Illustrated), Alan Milstein, Warren Zola, Robert Raiola, Kimberly Myers, and B.J. Schecter (the executive editor of Sports Illustrated and the panel’s moderator). The panel discussion was well-received, and New Hampshire’s largest newspaper, The Concord Monitor, dubbed the panelists “the magnificent seven” and featured a story about the panel on page one of the next day’s edition. A video of the event is available below.
