    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.
