At the end of June 2021, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously against the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in an antitrust case. The ruling stated that the NCAA went too far in restricting education-related aid for student athletes, with the court noting that formal legislation would be better suited for addressing non-education-related compensation, such as salary, endorsements, or other monetary gain from their name, image, and likeness (NIL). This is a crucial gateway toward eventually paying student athletes, a movement that has gained an increasing amount of public and political support in recent years. This case asks students to discuss the ruling and how it will influence the arguments both for and against paying student athletes.
