Timothy Liam Epstein, Chair of SmithAmundsen's Sports Law Practice Group, spoke at the University of Illinois College of Law on April 16, 2009 on various sports law issues for the amateur athlete.   "Legal Issues for the Amateur Athlete: Multiplied, Benched, and Injured," covered considerations for those involved in high school sports with divisional and playoff seeding based on schools drawing outside of their geographic boundaries, to liabilities for lack of or misuse of an athlete's playing time, to liabilities for injuries on the athletic field of play.
Tim has obtained detailed experience on several sports law matters including: disappointment lawsuits, multipliers and other alleged anti-recruiting measures in high school sports, student-athlete eligibility issues, a coach's standing to sue, personal websites for student-athletes, and civil liability for injuries during competition.  This was his latest engagement in a number of speaking invitations on Sports Law issues from law schools including Boston College Law School, the University of Virginia School of Law, Loyola University Chicago School of Law, and Notre Dame Law School.
