Partner Jonathan Israel was quoted in an article published by the Wharton Business School on March 19, 2014 titled, "At Risk: Are Unpaid College Athletes Exploited While Others Reap Millions?" The article discusses how college athletes are becoming much more vocal in asking for compensation since sports programs generate hundreds of millions of dollars for colleges, universities and sports-related industries. Israel was quoted saying, “In deciding whether Northwestern football players are employees or students, the NLRB will be looking at several issues.”
