Professor Keller will discuss the ethical issues at the center of the current debate on student-athlete compensation including whether fairness requires that student-athletes be compensated, beyond the value of their education, for their services and/or for use of their name, image and likeness. Starting with the NCAA’s concept of amateurism, Larry will describe recent attempts by student-athletes to be recognized as employees, and the antitrust issues raised by the NCAA’s rules prohibiting compensation. He will explore the educational benefits that student-athletes already receive, the college-sports business model, and Title IX requirements, all of which have implications for the student-athlete compensation debate. Finally, Larry will propose a compensation plan that will meet many of the legal and other objections posed by those who support the current NCAA prohibition.
