Do a date restricted search in WestLaw/Lexis with party name NCAA. See what cases have been cooking in the last 18 mos or so.

OP, why do you need a note topic when you're not in law school yet?

Everybody is writing about the ncaa. Pick something else.

Also, focus on your LSAT, not a note or finishing in the top 3%

You can't write a good law comment unless you've taken property and contracts and know about equity, and the public good and personhood and shit.

How about a 1st or 4th amendment paper on student athlete social media restriction by state universities?

OP, do you want to gun for publication or just barely scrape by?
