Credit the Brooklyn Bar President Andy Fallek and Continuing Education Director Meredith Symonds with coming up with a program which is sure to attract a crowd: “Brooklyn Nets Game and Media Rights CLE.”

Tickets cost money (just $100 for BBA members), but the night, co-sponsored by the Metropolitan Black Bar Association, will also feature a program dealing with sports and media rights. It runs from 6-10 p.m. at the Barclays Center.

Speakers will include Jeff Gerwirtz, Nets legal officer, and Kenneth Thropshire, Esq., a Wharton School professor of law.

Symonds notes that the digital revolution includes burgeoning broadcast streaming, adding that “(In) no place has the shift or the revenues been greater than sports.”

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

The invitation asks BBA members to “join us to learn about media digital streaming rights in the sports industry, the negotiation and drafting of these rights and how do sports teams control and monetize these rights in the U.S. and internationally.”
