The maze of NCAA regulations is daunting for the uninitiated and very few college administrators have the time or energy to plow through the NCAA’s 400 page-plus compliance manual. In addition, there are also the anticipated changes to those regulations which may substantially impact universities. There are also significant legal developments impacting college athletics which administrators need to be aware of, including developments with Title IX, academic fraud investigations and resulting litigation, union organizing, etc. Not being in compliance with the requirements is risky. Please join Scott Schneider, attorney at law, as he summarizes the main provisions of the NCAA compliance manual every administrator should be familiar with and discusses anticipated changes to those regulations. Mr. Schneider will also discuss the most significant legal developments impacting college athletics.
