Hackney Publications, the publisher of Concussion Policy and the Law, will announce Monday the launch of Concussion Litigation Reporter (CLR), the industry’s first newsletter devoted exclusively to the legal side of the sports concussion issue.
CLR, a subscription-based component of the blog, will provide timely analysis on developments and legal strategies at the intersection of sports and concussions. Subscribers will also have access to sports law articles related to concussions, which have appeared in other Hackney Publications.
“By providing immediate access to insightful content and analysis, we are meeting the legal industry’s need for ongoing information,” said Editor-in-Chief Holt Hackney, who also oversees the editorial operations of six other sports law periodicals.
Hackney also noted that Hackney Publications had reached an agreement with Paul D. Anderson, founder of the “blog” NFL Concussion Litigation, to become editor, providing exclusive bylined articles as well as valuable insight into other legal issues associated with sports concussions for CLR.
“Paul is the country’s leading unbiased authority on NFL concussion litigation,” said Hackney. “We’re excited to start turning him loose on other areas of concussion litigation, like collegiate athletics and K-12 athletics, where it is only a matter of time before we see a similar flurry of lawsuits brought against defendants in those industries.”
Anderson said the opportunity was too good to pass up.
“Hackney Publications is far and away the sports law industry’s leading publisher of periodicals,” said Anderson, who will continue to publish his own blog, while writing proprietary content for CLR. “This was a natural progression for me to expand beyond the niche of concussion litigation in professional sports to college athletics and high schools.”
The inaugural July 2012 issue of Concussion Litigation Reporter is being made available to the general public and the legal community FREE through July 31, 2012 at:
Hackney Publications also publishes: Professional Sports and the Law, Sports Litigation Alert, Legal Issues in Collegiate Athletics, Legal Issues in High School Athletics, Sports Facilities and the Law and the Journal of NCAA Compliance.
