Harvard Law Bulletin's Article on the N.C.A.A. and Workers' Rights


Published June 10th, 2014 - 06.10.1434


This summer’s cover story in the Harvard Law Bulletin is Pay for Play: Suddenly, the N.C.A.A. is forced to play defense in more than one court.  The story describes the multiple legal challenges the N.C.A.A. is facing for the way it compensates and treats its student-athletes, including the football player unionization drive at Northwestern University that we’ve covered extensively.

The article quotes Ben Sachs extensively, as he explains that there is a “perception that student-athletes are getting a raw deal.”

The whole article is worth a read.
