Sports Law: Governance and Regulation (College Edition)

· Chapter 2, “NCAA Internal Governance of Intercollegiate Athletics and Legal Limits,” (pp. 53–73, 82–93) The rising financial profit for colleges involved in competitive athletics has spawned increased regulation of intercollegiate sports. I have selected these pages in your course text because they focus on the most prominent of these regulatory bodies, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). As you read, note the extent of the NCAA’s regulations as well as the limitations on the NCAA’s authority. The authors also explain how and why the NCAA has increasingly faced antitrust litigation.
