Upcoming Oregon Law Review Symposium on the NCAA in Crisis

I'm honored to be participating in the upcoming Oregon Law Review symposium titled NCAA in Crisis: The Crossroads of Intercollegiate Sports.  The topic couldn't be more timely.  The symposium will be held on Friday April 11.

Warren Zola and I will be giving the introduction to the symposium (to be delivered by Warren).

Excellent work by Dustin Littrell, the Editor-in-Chief of the Oregon Law Review, and Kristina Cauthorn, OLR's Symposium Editor, in organizing the event, developing the panels and assembling an outstanding group of speakers.

Oregon Law Review's spring symposium, The NCAA in Crisis: the Crossroads of Intercollegiate Sports, will provide a forum for a comprehensive inquiry into questions regarding the current state of NCAA regulations and enforcement, and an analysis of Ed O'Bannon v. NCAA and its potential implications on amateurism, anti-trust law, the gaming industry, and possible legislature involvement. Through this inquiry, Oregon Law Review hopes to formulate and analyze possible solutions to the NCAA's current issue: how does the NCAA amend its regulatory and enforcement mechanisms to create a more efficient, effective, and fair organization?
