Enforcement and Infractions: The NCAA Governing Process

The West Virginia University College of Law Sports and Entertainment Law Society will host a special panel presentation on Tuesday, April 12th at 12 noon entitled "Enforcement and Infractions: The NCAA Governing Process." This panel will feature:

(a) Oliver Luck, Athletic Director at WVU, former NFL quarterback, former president MLS Houston Dynamos, and father of Stanford QB Andrew Luck;

(b) Ralph Cindrich, prominent football agent, attorney and owner of Cindrich & Co;

(c) Keli Cunningham, current Director of Compliance at WVU and former compliance assistant for the Big East Conference; and

(d) andré douglas pond cummings, Professor of Law at the West Virginia University College of Law and former sports agent to NFL athletes.

This panel will tackle the thorny issues that attend complying with and enforcing NCAA regulations in a modern and evolving sports culture in the United States, from a variety of perspectives. With NCAA infractions news constantly being reported, and in light of HBO's recent "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" where "pay for play" was debated and booster payments to football recruits, including "the money handshake" was exposed, this timely panel will undoubtedly shed light on the NCAA's successes and failures in enforcement and its infractions policymaking.

The panel is free and open to the public and will be webcast live.
