Missouri Enacts Progressive Name, Image, and Likeness Law

By: Tate Thompson and Curry Sexton

In the absence of uniform laws from Congress or a more robust policy from the NCAA, states continue to look for ways to help their institutions compete in the name, image, and likeness (NIL) “arms race.” One way is for states to implement progressive NIL laws.  Effective August 28, 2023, Missouri institutions will be able to arm themselves with arguably the most progressive state NIL law in the country. H.B.417, which was recently signed by Governor Mike Parson, significantly amends Missouri’s prior NIL law. As a result, Missouri institutions and the student-athletes who attend them, will likely benefit greatly following the most recent amendment.
