Revisiting NIL for International Student Athletes

Kristi Dosh

I'm joined this episode by Rob Seiger, a partner in Archer & Greiner P.C.’s Sports Law Group, who has joined us once before to talk about issues international student athletes have been trying to navigate in order to take advantage of the NCAA's new name, image and likeness rules.   

Rob represents college and university athletic departments in immigration and related compliance issues for their foreign athletes.

If you didn't hear our first episode, listen to it here. In this episode, we're taking a look at a few specific instances where international student athletes have attempted to take advantage of NIL without violating the restrictions of their student visas. Are these situations good examples of how international student athletes can take advantage of NIL opportunities? Or, will we see the government make an example out of them for violating visa laws?

This is an important topic that still has more questions than answers, unfortunately.

You can follow Archer & Greiner on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

You can follow Kristi on Twitter and Instagram to discuss further, ask additional questions or suggest future episodes.

You can find more of her analysis on the business of college sports at BusinessofCollegeSports.com and Forbes.
