Peter Carfagna

GLSELA Co-Director and Cleveland-Marshall Executive-in-Residence Peter Carfagna shares his thoughts on the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) decision that football players at Northwestern University were employees of the school, and have the right to unionize, in this Q&A feature.

Carfagna  is chairman/CEO of Magis, LLC, a privately owned sports marketing, management and investment company, that includes family ownership of the Lake County Captains, Cleveland Indians Class A Affiliate, and was previously Chief Legal Officer & General Counsel of International Management Group (IMG).

This ruling, and the legal battle that will ensue, will be covered in professor Carfagna's Representing the Professional Athlete course offered during this summer's Great Lakes Sports and Entertainment Academy.
