In pertinent part :
" § 116-400. Findings. The General Assembly finds that every student-athlete enrolled at an institution of higher education that has an athletic program should have an opportunity to (i) be compensated for the use of his or her name, image, and likeness in relation to an athletic program and (ii) hire an athlete agent or licensed attorney to represent the student-athlete's interests in participating in an athletic program. The General Assembly also finds that protecting student-athletes so that they are not compelled to forfeit this opportunity to be eligible to participate in intercollegiate athletic competitions vitally affects the public interest."
In addition, student-athletes must ensure that contract terms do not conflict with a provision of the student-athlete's team contract, and to disclose the contract to a designated official for the institution of higher education.
