Professor Tim Davis is one the country’s best known sports law scholars.

Oregon Law Review’s spring symposium, The NCAA in Crisis: the Crossroads of Intercollegiate Sports, will provide a forum for a comprehensive inquiry into questions regarding the current state of NCAA regulations and enforcement, and an analysis of Ed O’Bannon v. NCAA and its potential implications on amateurism, anti-trust law, the gaming industry, and possible legislature involvement. Through this inquiry, Oregon Law Review hopes to formulate and analyze possible solutions to the NCAA’s current issue: how does the NCAA amend its regulatory and enforcement mechanisms to create a more efficient, effective, and fair organization?

Davis will discuss NCAA legislation, effective August 2013, that changes the processes by which the NCAA investigates, adjudicates and imposes sanctions for violations of rules governing Division I intercollegiate athletics.  The new legislation attempts to address problems that limited the effectiveness and diminished the credibility of the pre-August 2013 enforcement structure.
