UNH To Offer 'Deflategate' Course To Undergrads

May 8, 2015

UNH Law Professor and Sports Journalist Michael McCann will teach a social science course to UNH Undergrads next year called “Deflategate.” 

The course will cover the intersection of sports law and journalism. Professor Michael McCann says it will include the Aaron Hernandez, Donald Sterling and "Deflategate" scandals, in addition to more general issues like union membership, contracts, and privacy rights.

"Students, I hope by the end of the course, are able to talk about "Deflategate" from a legal perspective, and then connect it to other major stories in sports that have implicated the law," he says.

McCann is a law professor who also writes for  Sports Illustrated.
