NEW YORK, NY - September 18, 2013 - The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business will host a discussion on the legal and ethical issues surrounding the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Principle of Amateurism. Marc Edelman, Associate Professor of Law, who will be leading the discussion, specializes in sports law, antitrust, intellectual property, and gaming law and has written extensively on the need for legal reform to the NCAA.

In recent years, some members of The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), which oversees the $11 billion college sports industry, have become increasingly wealthy, but NCAA’s rules 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), and the future of both the NCAA and its Principle of Amateurism.
