Friday, November 17
The Lourdes University Lifelong Learning program presents Sports & Law at 10 a.m. with Geoffrey Rapp, the Harold A. Anderson Professor of Law and Values, and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at The University of Toledo College of Law. From the 20th century “antitrust exemption” cases in baseball to today’s concussion litigation, sports-related cases have proven challenging for courts on a number of levels. Big money generated by sports after the broadcast revolution means big money at issue in litigation. Professor Rapp, author of Careers in Sports Law, argues that sports cases create challenging conditions for judges who can be affected by emotion and their own experience as fans. He will highlight some of the major areas in which sports jurisprudence has created distinctive rules and bodies of law.

The Lifelong Learning Hot Topic Americans’ Attitudes About the News Media is offered from 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Why are Democrats more likely than Republicans to support news media’s watchdog role? The Pew Research Center has asked this question since 1985. Compared with 2016, Democrats and Republicans are now more divided on whether the press favors one side in its political coverage and on how much trust they have in national news media. As part of the discussion, we’ll find out how participants get their news and see how they compare to the national audience. $10 for Lifelong Learning members; $15 for non-members. Cost includes a lunch of soup, sandwiches and dessert.
