Abstract

College athletics have become a big business. The NCAA does indeed allow for student-athletes to secure the advice of legal counsel, permitting a student-athlete to retain a lawyer to advise him or her and their family when the move to professional sports becomes imminent. This article argues for the importance of that good counsel, and illustrates that the NCAA does not restrict student-athletes from securing advice from lawyers or other individuals like a family advisor.
