Athlete Agents Act


The UAAA was adopted in 2000, and it has been enacted in 43 states. In recent years, however, there have been substantial changes in the marketplace for athletic agents, and a number of states have recently considered non-uniform amendments to the act, particularly in response to allegations in the past two years of improper conduct by agents with regard to college athletes. The Drafting Committee will draft amendments to the Uniform Athlete Agents Act that are appropriate in light of the experience with the 2000 Act.
