October 10, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Blue Zone
In a casual setting, listen to a truly star studded panel discuss legal issues in sports, leveraging their law degrees and what Carolina means to them.
Our society is impacted daily by sport. Whether it’s our own interest, or that of friends, family or the market place, sports makes its way into our lives daily. Recreational, collegiate or professional, sports are woven into the fabric of our lives, and since they can have a long-lasting positive impact, it’s important to recognize leaders in the industry. This free event is a great place to meet several Tar Heels who are leaving a positive imprint in sports beyond the court or field. Light refreshments provided.
Carolina Law alum Gardner Altman, Jr., a Fayetteville native and entrepreneur, hosts this panel discussion to highlight some amazing Tar Heels and their contributions in the sports world.
