Bob Batterman, the outside legal counsel to the NFL, and NFLPA outside counsel Jeffrey Kessler were scheduled to speak on Friday morning, but sources said both are expected to cancel due to the sensitive nature of the NFL lockout and the ongoing antitrust litigation in Tom Brady v. the NFL.
Meanwhile, the SLA has scheduled several panels dealing with the NCAA, including "Legal Impact of Agent Interference in Intercollegiate Athletics" and "Town Hall Debate: The Current State & Legality of the College BSC System."
