The NCAA Enforcement Process: A Critical Discussion
October 9th in Vanderbilt Hall Room 210 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM
A “who’s who” of experts and insiders will shed light on the enforcement process during a pair of unique panel discussions.
The program will feature two panels. The first panel will discuss the NCAA enforcement process in general, including new legislation and procedures, and feature a discussion with an experienced NCAA enforcement representative, a practitioner in NCAA infractions matters, and a representative of an NCAA member institution. The second panel will take a “deep dive” into the 2011 University of Tennessee infractions case, including the first-ever discussion by a former head coach and his counsel of their real-life experiences in the enforcement process, and the impact of media reaction to that case.
The first panel will include Joyce Thompson, NCAA Enforcement Representative; Michael Buckner, Counsel to NCAA institutions and personnel, Buckner Law Firm; Joan C. Waters, Associate General Counsel, The City University of New York; and moderator Robert A. Boland, Professor of Sports Management & Sports Business at New York University and of counsel to Sword Law LLC.
The second panel will include Bruce Pearl, former Head Men’s Basketball Coach at University of Tennessee and current ESPN Analyst; Steven J. Thompson, Counsel to Coach Pearl, NCAA institutions and personnel, Ungaretti & Harris LLP; Dana O’Neil, ESPN.com College Basketball Reporter, and moderator Lester Munson, ESPN.com Senior Writer and Legal Analyst.
The program is open to NYU students, practicing attorneys (who can receive CLE credit) and the general public.
