Our guest today is Ricky Volante. Ricky is the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of the PCL (The Professional Collegiate League) which is the first professional collegiate sports league. He is also the Founder of The Volante Law Firm, a boutique firm focused on sports, entertainment, and corporate law.

In this interview Ricky speaks to LawInSport's founder and CEO, Sean Cottrell, about the entrepreneurial issues that come with setting up a professional sports league such as venue management, merchandising rights, media rights and employment contracts.
