Event Description:
Baruch's own Professor Marc Edelman will lead this presentation that will discuss the legitimacy of the NCAA 'no pay' rules from both a legal and ethical perspective and their Principle of Amateurism.


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.

Complimentary Pre-registration is required to attend:

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.

LOCATION: Newman Library 151 East 25th St., 7th Floor, Room 750 (between Lexington and 3rd Ave.) Program will be proceeded by a light lunch. Learn more at
