2010 Symposium: Legal Perspectives on the NCAA

The NCAA at 100 Years: Perspectives on its Past, Present, and Future

On October 15, 2010, with the help of our sponsor Ropes & Gray, Boston College Law School and the Boston College Law Review held an all-day symposium that examined some of the legal issues raised by the NCAA’s growth. The program featured a lunchtime panel during which Roy Kramer, former SEC Commissioner and founder of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS), and Matthew Sanderson, executive director of PlayoffPac, discussed postseason college football, the BCS, and the National Championship. Jeremy Schaap of ESPN moderated. The program also included numerous presentations by professors, journalists, and athletic directors in four panels: (1) The NCAA and Gender, (2) The NCAA and Students, (3) The NCAA as a Commercial Enterprise, and (4) The NCAA and Constitutional Law.
