2014 Symposium

 

 

Next Symposium: March 21, 2014, 8:30AM at the Law School

Please sign up here.

Topic: “Should there be some form of judicial—or other independent—review of NCAA enforcement actions?”

The Law School’s 20th Anniversary Symposium theme will revolve around the NCAA.

Some have accused the NCAA of engaging in witch-hunt investigations and unfair hearings of players and coaches accused of violating its rules, thereby recklessly destroying careers.  This symposium asks: should there be some form of judicial—or other independent—review of NCAA enforcement actions?

Papers are to be published in a special symposium edition of the Roger Williams University Law Review during the spring of 2015.
