BRIEFING: COVID-19 Collegiate Athletics Update

Click here for materials access.

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically altered the collegiate athletics landscape. Entire athletic seasons have been lost, tournaments and championships have been canceled, and the ability of student athletes to gather and practice has been curtailed. College and university attorneys are examining the novel legal issues and practical challenges raised by the sudden changes forced by the pandemic as well as planning for an eventual restart of athletics programs. Please join us for a NACUA Briefing with Scott Bearby, Vice President of Legal Affairs & General Counsel at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA); Patrick Dunkley, Senior University Counsel and Deputy Athletics Director at Stanford University; and Janet Judge, Partner at Holland & Knight LLP, who will walk through the unique need-to-know issues during this challenging time. They will address key legal and practical considerations in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the role of counsel in advising athletics operations, NCAA rules compliance and updates, coach and athletics staff employment considerations, and ongoing Title IX equity and non-discrimination obligations.

This 30-minute briefing will be audio-only and will be complimentary to NACUA members.
