Green Facility Information

Perhaps no area of law has the potential to impact sports facilities in the next few years more than green facility law.

This information is provided by Professor Bill Miller, Assistant Professor, Health, Exercise Science & Sport Management, University of Wisconsin - Parkside, Kenosha, Wisconsin. Professor Miller is a member of the National Sports Law Institute's Sports Law Alumni Association and liaison to its Board of Advisors. In 2009, Miller developed a course focusing solely on green facility development, finance and marketing issues for sports organizations. The course, "Sustainable Sports Management," is believed to be one of the first (if not the first) of its kind in the country.
