In this course, we will study the infractions and compliance process in intercollegiate athletics, with an emphasis on the NCAA. We will discuss historical matters but will focus primarily on NCAA rules and enforcement, with a particular emphasis on cases decided by the Committee on Infractions and the Infractions Appeals Committee of the NCAA. Eighty percent (80%) of the final grade will be based on a paper or project. Each student will be expected to either prepare and present a brief in a pending infractions case or write an opinion in a pending case. Alternatively, students may write a substantive paper regarding a particular issue or a paper regarding a project that relates to the infractions and compliance process. Twenty percent (20%) of the class will be based on class preparation and participation.
