    Alston v. NCAA: Will "Amateurism" Survive?

    12:30 PM EST

    Just over three years ago, the Ninth Circuit overturned a ruling by U. S. District Court Chief Judge Claudia Wilken, in O'Bannon v. NCAA, that--in the majorities' view--would have eroded the NCAA's principle of "amateurism." In Alston v. NCAA, Judge Wilken is now faced with the direct question of whether the NCAA's "amateurism" rules are unlawful.  This panel will address the key arguments on both sides, as well as the possible ramifications of the court's decision.

    Sponsored by:  Section of Antitrust Law and Trade, Sports & Professional Associations Committee and Co-Sponsored by:  ABA Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries. 

    Moderator:  Bryan Bloom, New York Attorney General

    Speakers:

    Michael Carrier, Rutgers Law School
    Gabe Feldman, Tulane Law School
