Hour 1: Lawyers Gone Wild — Online Behavior and Attorney Do's and Don'ts (Ethics Credit)
1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

When is it right to brag about incompetence and inappropriate courtroom behavior on Facebook? The answer for most sensible people is "never," but one young attorney learned this the hard way. Keith Lee (@associatesmind) from Hamer Law Group — and founder of the nationally popular Associate's Mind blog — will walk through the case and its ethical concerns, as well as provide best practices for young attorneys online.


Hour 2: Ed O'Bannon and the End of the NCAA as We Know It

2:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Times are changing for the NCAA and Kristi Dosh – the Sports Biz Miss – will lead you through a discussion of the most recent legal challenges facing the NCAA and what it means for the future of college sports. Will athletes get paid? How will this work? What is going to happen to conferences and teams in the future? Kristi will discuss all of this and more including a discussion of the broader legal ramifications invoked.

Hour 3: Strange Brew: Starting Up, Maintaining and (Legally) Building Craft Breweries
3:00 to 4:00 p.m.

The craft beer industry has exploded in the US over the last decade and with that has come a host of changes to statutes and regulations, in addition to some instructive cases. For instance, it’s illegal to brew your own beer and distribute it yourself in many states… so that tasty stout you’ve been working on in your basement technically needs to be sold by someone outside of your immediate family. It gets messier from there.

Melinda Sellers and Shea Sullivan, partners with Burr & Forman LLP, who represent breweries and distributors, will discuss the regulatory framework and share lessons learned from their experiences with startup breweries. Participants will learn to recognize hot topics and issues associated with alcohol manufacturing and distribution.


Hour 4: Behind the Scenes at Turner Sports
4:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Turner Sports is massive; they handle all sports programming for TBS, TNT and TruTV, and also operate the digital media outlets at,, Bleacher Report, and Turner Sports and the NBA jointly manage NBA Digital, including NBA TV,, NBA League Pass, NBA Mobile, the NBA Game Time App, and All of this includes rights packages for the NBA, Major League Baseball, the NCAA Basketball Tournament and professional golf.

In this session, Clay Travis will lead a conversation with Kevin Glidewell, Senior Counsel, Sports and Digital Entertainment at Turner. Clay and Kevin will discuss the changing landscape of sports media, the business and legal concerns of businesses that are increasingly competing in a digital world, and the differences between private practice and an in-house job in general.


5:00 to 6:30 p.m. Meet and greet with Clay Travis and other speakers
