Oregon Law Review's spring symposium, The NCAA in Crisis: the Crossroads of Intercollegiate Sports, will provide a forum for a comprehensive inquiry into questions regarding the current state of NCAA regulations and enforcement, and an analysis of Ed O'Bannon v. NCAA and its potential implications on amateurism, anti-trust law, the gaming industry, and possible legislature involvement. Through this inquiry, Oregon Law Review hopes to formulate and analyze possible solutions to the NCAA's current issue: how does the NCAA amend its regulatory and enforcement mechanisms to create a more efficient, effective, and fair organization?
