Illinois NIL Law for NCAA

On June 29th, 2021, Illinois passed a Name, Image, Likeness (NIL) law for their colleges and institutions. Illinois is one of the first states to see the legislation go live, as it is effective July 1, 2021. Governor J. B. Pritzker signed Senate Bill 2338 allowing intercollegiate student athletes the ability to earn compensation for the use of their NIL. However, on May 20, 2022, the state of Illinois passed an amended bill. Governor J. B. Pritzker signed House Bill 1175 which took effect May 20, 2022.
