Abstract

Ed Edmonds was quoted in the SB Tribune article Experts, ex-Notre Dame athletes dissect ruling on unions on March 28.

Ed Edmonds, an associate dean and director of the law library at Notre Dame Law School, said the NLRB’s ruling “goes to the core of the issue of amateurism that is at the heart of the NCAA.”

Edmonds said the ruling, if it stands, could lead Notre Dame to reconsider how many scholarships it offers athletes. A host of federal and state laws, such as those requiring employers to provide health care and retirement benefits, also would come into play if student-athletes are considered employees.
