A group of law students from NSU’s Shepard Broad Law Center held a symposium for approximately 700 area high school football players to teach them the importance of good character and decision-making and how to stay out of trouble.

The players, who were participating in the Miami Dolphins Academy 7-on-7 tournament, heard from executives of the Florida Dolphins, including CEO Mike Dee, general manager Jeff Ireland, Dolphins tackle Nate Garner, and Gordon Weekes, head of the Juvenile Division in the Broward County Public Defenders Office and an NSU Law Center alumnus.

The symposium, titled “Beyond the End Zone,” was organized by Matthew Shafran, Joseph Fahrendorf and Carli Pierson. It was held on June 18 at the Arena at the Don Taft University Center on NSU’s main campus.
