Maryland NIL Law for NCAA

On May 18, 2021, Maryland passed a Name, Image, Likeness (NIL) law for their colleges and institutions. Maryland will see the legislation go live, effective July 1, 2023. Governor Larry Hogan signed Senate Bill 439 allowing intercollegiate student athletes the ability to earn compensation for the use of their NIL. Senate Bill 439 was the broader legislative act that paved the way for NIL rights in Maryland. Md. Code Ann., Educ. § 15-131 is the specific legal language outlining those NIL rights.
