The NCAA has retained the law firm of Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP (“Kaplan Hecker”) to conduct a comprehensive and thorough external review of gender equity issues in connection with the NCAA, focusing on NCAA championships. While the immediate focus of this review is on women’s and men’s basketball, the full review will include an examination across other sports and championships more broadly, examining challenges that may be unique to those programs.
