For over a century, the NCAA has enforced rules and policies that largely prohibited colleges from
compensating student-athletes. In a June 2021 narrow ruling that may have broader implications, the
Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the NCAA’s rules regarding modest payments tied to educational
expenses violated the Sherman Act. We’ll discuss the ruling, the implications on other NCAA rules regarding
student-athlete compensation, and how this ruling may have broader implications regarding wage rules.


• Overview of history of NCAA rules barring payment to student-athletes.
• Overview of legal challenges to NCAA rules.
• NCAA v. Alston ruling
• Further challenges
• Broader application of the ruling?
