For over a century, the NCAA has enforced rules and policies that largely prohibited colleges from compensating student-athletes. In a June 2021 narrow ruling that may have broader implications, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the NCAA’s rules regarding modest payments tied to educational expenses violated the Sherman Act.
Eliot Adelson will moderate the “NCAA v. Alston: Antitrust and Student-Athlete Compensation” panel Tuesday, November 2, 2021. Presented by the Antitrust & Business Regulation Section of the San Francisco Bar Association, the panel will discuss the recent unanimous Supreme Court decision that antitrust laws prohibit the NCAA from barring modest payments to student athletes. They will also address the implications on other NCAA rules regarding student-athlete compensation, and how this ruling may have broader implications regarding wage rules.
