IAAL but I don’t know the answer to this question. The June 30, 2006 edition of The Sporting News magazine (print edition only, apparently) has a big article about how to become a licensed NBA sports agent. Having a license to practice law, or to be a CPA, or a certified financial planner, isn’t a requirement, which leads me to the question: Why isn’t being a sports agent without a professional law license practicing law without a license?
My hunch is that it is practicing law without a license, but that is just my hunch. Does anybody have a good answer?
