Intercollegiate sports generate about $12 billion in revenues every year. The NCAA instituted the four-year athletic scholarship to compensate student athletes in 1950, but started to place restrictions on those scholarships in 1973.
Student athletes have successfully challenged NCAA restrictions in a series of antitrust lawsuits. This seminar will examine the history of antitrust cases brought against the NCAA, culminating in Jenkins v. NCAA, in which former college athletes asserted that the NCAA has violated antitrust laws by prohibiting the compensation of players for television appearances.
The seminar is hosted by veteran trial attorney and Montclair State University professor Gary J. Chester, who addresses the fundamental goals of antitrust law, the history of antitrust cases against the NCAA, whether the result in Jenkins proves that the NCAA is an illegal cartel, and the future of intercollegiate athletics.
Gary J. Chester is a New Jersey trial attorney who has been in practice since 1983. He has reported and commented on sports law issues for The New York Times, CNN, ESPN Sportsticker, WFAN, KMOX, Street & Smith’s Sports Business Journal, and others. Mr. Chester has served as an adjunct professor at two New Jersey colleges since 2008, where he teaches several courses in law, including The Law of Sports, Entertainment and Tourism.
Pretty much the best program that have seen on Lawline. Excellent.
Great information on the issue of athlete's ability to control the use of their respective names, images and likeness. Very informativve and clear and concise presentation.
GOOD PRESENTER AND GOOD CONTENT- VERY INTERESTING!!
This was an enlightening runthrough of not only law, but history. Suggesting this for a future course: Is MLB an illegal cartel?
Excellent presentation and very interesting materials.
Surprised there was no mention of what went wrong for the plaintiffs in Agnew v. NCAA.
Gary was great. A+
I do believe athletes should be compensatred in line with the value they bring to the school. I enjoyed the football highlights. I am not a sports person, but I have been following this issue so I enjoyed this presentation.
