On July 27, 2021 by Schnader

EVENT DATE: August 11, 2021

Schnader presented a timely webinar about, “What Every College Athlete Needs To Know About Earning Income From NIL And Endorsements.”

Student-athletes suddenly have opportunities to earn income from endorsing products and services and licensing their name, image and likeness (“NIL”).

Now student-athletes should understand the law and what rules apply going forward. This workshop explained the basics of NIL and endorsements. 

The following issues were discussed:

  • Recent changes in the NCAA rules and state laws about how college athletes can earn income using their NIL
  • The legal rights held by athletes for their intellectual property and right of publicity
  • How student-athletes can profit while complying with university policies
  • Opportunities and challenges that may occur, and how to handle them

The webinar featured leading attorneys from Schnader’s Sports Law Team and Intellectual Property Practice Group.
