College Athletics Update: Emerging Legal Issues

Intercollegiate athletics programs can present the most exciting and the most challenging issues for college and university attorneys. Legal developments involving athletics at all levels continue to dominate the news and impact colleges and universities in significant ways. This webinar will explore the role of counsel at institutions both large and small to reduce risk and address the broad range of day-to-day athletic questions that may include high profile litigation, NCAA and OCR compliance and investigations, contract negotiations, and campus-based employee and student-athlete conduct. Join three practitioners with diverse perspectives for a discussion of sports and law and a few things in-between.

This webinar will be of interest to campus counsel, administrators, and others on campus with responsibility for athletics.

Topics will include:

  • The Role of the Office of General Counsel in Athletics: Setting up shop to advise on the range of issues from Contracts and Employment to Athlete Agents and Enterprise Risk Management
  • NCAA Issues: Overview of the NCAA, NCAA Trends and Litigation Update, and Compliance
