Law 792:  Legal and Policy Changes in College Athletics

This course will survey the several intersecting measures that have given rise to the current state of disruption in college athletics. Focusing on the legal regimes that led to student-athlete name, image and likeness reform and changing conference affiliations, this course will teach students how antitrust restrictions, labor interests, intellectual property debates, and other legal concerns work alongside NCAA rules, business interests, and American political dynamics to craft the opportunity space in which athletic departments establish their competitive positions to further an increasingly diverse set of university missions. Students will develop their unique philosophies regarding the appropriate construction of intercollegiate athletics policy in order to place themselves within this ongoing discussion. This course is pass/fail.
