2021 was a watershed year in addressing NCAA restrictions on student-athlete compensation. In response to dozens of state laws, the NCAA modified its rules to allow students to be compensated for their name, image, and likeness (“NIL”). In addition, the U.S. Supreme Court in Alston v. NCAA unanimously upheld a district court’s injunction preventing the NCAA from enforcing its limitations on education-related benefits for student-athletes.
A panel of experts will address the changing landscape of NCAA student-athlete compensation.
