NIL is a burgeoning industry, not just for college athletes, it seems, but for lawyers as well. With that in mind, the Texas A&M School of Law will begin offering a name, image and likeness-focused course beginning in Spring 2023, co-taught by former Texas A&M RB (and current Cincinnati Bengal) Trayveon Williams.

Rather than an asset for athletes, this will be a graduate course offered at the A&M Law School in Fort Worth. In addition to Williams, the course will be taught by current professor Alex Sinatra. She is also a sports attorney and sports business consultant.

The class will be offered only in the spring to accommodate Williams’ NFL schedule. He is entering his fourth year in the NFL after breaking Texas A&M’s single-season rushing record with 1,760 yard in 2018.
