The Kansas Paralegal Association is hosting a CLE Lunch-N-Learn through Zoom on Wednesday, July 24, 2024, from 12:00pm to 1:00pm CST.

TOPIC OVERVIEW: Our guest speakers, Megan K. Walawender, Senior Associate General Counsel and Deputy Athletic Director for Compliance and Legal Affairs and Lauren Lile, Legal Intern at The Office of the General Counsel for The University of Kansas will be presenting on the topic: Changing Times in College Athletics.


This presentation will cover the changing legal landscape in college athletics focusing on the intersection of these areas:

  • Name, image and likeness—what it is and the variety of the legal issues surrounding name, image and likeness.
  • An overview of federal litigation related to college athletics (from antitrust cases related to NCAA rules to FLSA actions).
  • NLRB cases seeking employee status for student-athletes.
  • Other areas impacting college athletics, such as sports wagering.


Megan Walawender began working with Kansas Athletics as Associate Athletics Director for Legal Affairs in October 2018. She is also a Senior Associate General Counsel in the University’s General Counsel’s office, where she began in April 2016. Though primarily working in Athletics, Megan maintains duties with the University in this role. When she was in a full-time capacity in the General Counsel’s office, she handled litigation matters on behalf of the University across all campuses.   This year she will finish serving on the Kansas Continuing Legal Education Commission board, following a six-year appointment.

Lauren Lile is a legal intern for Kansas Athletics and a soon-to-be 3L at the University of Kansas School of Law. She is a Jayhawk through and through as she holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Accounting as well as a Master of Accounting from the University of Kansas. During her time at KU, she has worked in several roles for the Athletic Department. Lauren has developed a passion for sports law and hopes to work in the field upon graduation. In her free time, she likes to cook, exercise and walk her dog, Moose.
