Athlete agency law hasn’t gone through rapid, real impact changes like this in decades. Turn on any cable sports and business show and you’ll find athlete agency law is constantly being discussed. Whether a lawyer wants to join a college athletic department, counsel student-athletes on scholarships & amateur eligibility, or review pro contracts, this course provides the knowledge required to understand the obligations.
Presented by Brian Brunkow, a Seattle-based California and Washington-licensed attorney, this course will cover key topics such as critical sports agency regulations, best practices for vetting sports agents, non-agent lawyer “do’s and don’ts” in negotiations, and current state law trends taking power and control away from the NCAA.
Brian Brunkow is a Seattle-based CA & WA-licensed attorney with a background in regulatory compliance, corporate training, and dispute resolution. Outside of work, Brian has coached youth and high school football, is a sports-parenting author, and speaks at west coast high school coaching clinics on student-athlete development and NCAA recruiting.

Passionate about subject. I wish it was a video course but otherwise excellent. Though it seemed specialized topic, we are often surrounded by student athletes and there was valuable information.
