In its highly-publicized decision last term in National Collegiate Athletic Association v. Alston, 141 S.Ct. 2141 (2021), the Supreme Court unanimously held that the NCAA cannot restrict the education-related compensation that NCAA member schools provide to student athletes. And while the Court was careful to limit its holding to education-related compensation because that was the only issue before it, the logic of the Court’s opinion calls into question the continuing validity of other NCAA restrictions on benefits offered to student athletes. As Justice Brett Kavanaugh pithily observed in his concurrence, “[p]rice fixing labor is price fixing labor,” and “[t]he NCAA’s business model would be flatly illegal in almost any other industry in America.”
Join us on Zoom for a panel discussion exploring the future of college sports in the wake of Alston, exploring questions like: Are the days of amateurism in major Division I sports over? Will collegiate and professional teams try to outbid each other for start athletes? And what lessons can other organizations and industries learn from the Court’s Alston ruling?
