Collegiate Athletics Compliance 101

Alexander "Sandy" Bilus, Patrick Nugent, and Amy Piccola, all partners in the Firm's Higher Education Practice, will present a CLE webinar, Collegiate Athletics Compliance 101.  This program will provide an introduction to athletics governance and compliance issues and review several "hot topics," including impermissible benefits, institutional monitoring and control, and head coach responsibilities. Attendees will leave with an overview of the best practices that can be applied to their own collegiate athletics programs.

Who Should Attend? 

This program will benefit athletic directors and in-house counsel from institutions without an entire athletics compliance department devoted to these issues.
