Brandon Posivak Presents Law Review Article on College Athlete Name, Image, and Likeness at University of Akron Law Symposium
Pepperdine Caruso Law third-year student Brandon Posivak was invited to speak about his law review article "The Demise of the Hub-and-Spoke Cartel and the Rise of the Student Athlete: A Significant Step Toward a New Era of Conferences in NCAA v. Alston" at the University of Akron Sports and Entertainment Law Symposium. The symposium, titled "Game Changers: Rewriting the Playbook - A Sports and Entertainment Law Symposium," was held on April 14 at the University of Akron School of Law. It is a prestigious honor for a Caruso Law student with a published law review article to be included on a professional panel at a law review symposium.
At the symposium Posivak discussed his law article, published in the University of Miami Business Law Review, regarding the Supreme Court's decision in NCAA v. Alston that student athletes may obtain education-related benefits from their name, image, and likeness (NIL). Posivak addressed the antitrust consequences of NIL legislation; judicial decisions and how those decisions impact college athletes; and the longevity of the NCAA.
