About the Program

Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity on October 1st as we host Baruch's own Professor Marc Edelman for a discussion of the legal and ethical issues that surround the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Principle of Amateurism.

Background

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (“NCAA”) oversees nearly every aspect of the $11 billion college sports industry.  Its powers include scheduling championship events, determining eligibility rules, entering into commercial contracts, and punishing members that refuse to follow its authority.  In recent years, some NCAA members have become increasingly wealthy – grossing annual revenues upwards of $100 million per year.  However, despite such profitability, the NCAA’s rules still deprive membership from sharing their wealth with student-athletes.  This presentation will discuss the legitimacy of the NCAA ‘no pay’ rules from both a legal and ethical perspective.  It will also lead to a discussion about what should be the future of both the NCAA and its Principle of Amateurism.

About the Speaker

Professor Marc Edelman is an Associate Professor of Law at the Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College, City University of New York, where he specializes in sports law, antitrust, intellectual property, and gaming law.

Professor Edelman is cited by the media on a wide range of sports law topics, including how the Sherman Act applies to professional sports leagues, how gaming laws apply to fantasy sports contests, and the legal issues that pertain to NCAA amateurism.  His publications on sports law have been cited by three Supreme Court briefs, numerous textbooks, and more than 100 law review articles.

In recent years, Professor Edelman has written extensively on the need for legal reform to the NCAA.  Professor Edelman’s most recent law review article, A Short Treatise on Amateurism and Antitrust Law: Why the NCAA’s ‘No Pay” Rules Violate Section One of the Sherman Act, will be published in an upcoming edition of Case Western University Law Review.
