Join Villanova Law professors Andrew Brandt, Director, Jeffrey S. Moorad Center for the Study of Sports Law, and Shea Rhodes, Director, Institute to Address Commercial Sexual Exploitation as they discuss the Cleveland Browns quarterback, Deshaun Watson, and his predatory behavior, suspension, contract and implications on the National Football League (NFL), professional sports and society as a whole.

What impact do the decisions made by the NFL in the Deshaun Watson case mean for prominent highly paid athletes and celebrities moving forward, and what does fan response say about cultural tolerance and ethics? Join Professors Brandt and Rhodes as they unpack this case and consider the intersection of professional sports and sexual exploitation more broadly.

We look forward to seeing you!
