On March 12, 2011, NFL owners and NFL players came to an impasse, resulting in a lock-out and ending more than 20 years of labor peace in America's most popular sport. National Football League Players Association Assistant Executive Director of External Affairs George Atallah and a soon-to-be-announced player from the NFL will host a presentation on the state of football.

Topics to be discussed include success of the game, the lockout, and how the sides reached this point. A question and answer session will follow.

The program will also include remarks by American University Washington College of Law Professor Jamie Raskin, director of the law school's Program on Law and Government, and American University Washington College of Law Adjunct Professor Howard Shatsky '89, owner of Professional Football Management who has represented NFL players since graduating from law school.
