Game Over? Alston and the Future of Fair Pay to Play Statutes

NCAA v. Alston, which was heard by the Supreme Court in March, will decide whether the National Collegiate Athletic Association eligibility rules regarding compensation of student-athletes violate federal antitrust law. Led by Rutgers Law School associate dean Camille Andrews, the panel includes experts in the field of antitrust, sports, and intellectual property law, this discussion will consist of a breakdown of the Alston case and the effects the Court’s decision could have on the current state-level Fair Pay to Play legislation. The panel will also discuss the varied approaches individual states have taken to compensate student athletes and analyze the advantages and disadvantages associated with allowing student athletes to benefit from their name, image, and likeness. Attendees will leave with a greater understanding of the origins of NCAA antitrust litigation and the rights granted to student athletes under these new laws.
