According to The Center for the Study of Sports in Society, Alderson will discuss his career as a lawyer and “how lawyers and sports executives communicate their business decisions and policies to the public through the media.”

Alderson’s second lecture, titled “How Sports Executives Who Aren’t Math Majors Can Use Data Effectively,” will be held at 7:30p.m. in Room 110 of the Business Building.
