Game Over or Changing the Game? Employment Status & NIL Show Cause - A Memphis Law Podcast

    • Society & Culture

The concept of NCAA student-athletes being recognized as employees has brought about intense debate surrounding NIL deals and regulations.

In this episode, we delve into many of the relevant issues such as the ability of student-athletes unionization or players associations, insurance, the implications of student-athletes being "fired" and losing scholarships, increased costs on behalf of universities due to salaries and benefits, taxation issues, and the implications on non-revenue generating sports within athletic departments.

Memphis Law professor Lynda Black and recent Memphis Law graduate Lexi Hivner join us to go into more depth about all of these related employment issues and the future of NIL.
