NIL-Law-Review-SympMore Than Sports:
What Comes After NIL?

5.25 CLE hours, including 1 hour Ethics
Free, Registration Required

In the summer of 2021, following the Supreme Court’s Alston decision, the NCAA changed its guidelines to allow college athletes to be able to profit on their name, image, and likeness. This symposium is geared towards looking at the state of NIL law now, as states scramble to pass laws and the NCAA scrambles to enforce its new guidelines. It will look into the pressing issues in antitrust, employment, conflicts, professional responsibility, and how athletes can navigate this legal minefield.
