Warm up with the basics and build a strong foundation. During this session, learn the meaning of NIL and how it relates to student athletes. Then discover how we got here with coverage of recent decisions, state law and regulations, and NCAA policies.

10:10 NIL and International Student Athletes
Sherrod Seward, OAKLG Legal Group, Charlotte
Get the ball rolling as we dive deeper into the world of international student athletes and the impact of NIL financial benefits on student visas. On campus or off campus, passive income or active, hobby or business, on U.S. soil or international — find out why these things matter and other key considerations for schools and individuals to avoid jeopardizing a student’s immigration status.
11:20 Current Issues With NIL Compliance and Enforcement
Mike Ingersoll, Womble Bond Dickinson (US) LLP, Charlotte
Get your head in the game as we discuss current issues with compliance and enforcement — What now and what next? How has the playing field changed for students and collectives? Discover best practices for working with collectives and explore key considerations for deal structuring and NIL opportunities.
Allowing student athletes to gain financial benefits from name, image and likeness (NIL) provides new opportunities and new hurdles for student athletes, schools, collectives and attorneys.
