The journal is a student-produced publication written entirely by undergraduate students from UCLA and other universities across the country with the aim of furthering undergraduate legal research. The arguments on each side often hinge on whether or not student-athletes should be able to unionize, neither of which recognize the opportunity that these student-athletes have to leverage their profitability into new supportive legislation for all Division I student-athletes who are on scholarship. The article argues that there is a legal and ethical obligation for universities with Division I programs to provide more support for their student-athletes, including four-year guaranteed scholarships, free health care that extends to injuries that last after graduation, and deferred compensation for prominent student-athletes.

Some groups continued their migration along the Pacific coastline, while others worked their way eastward across present-day Alaska and the western Canadian provinces before turning southward.
Archaeologists have established points in time and space for these peoples mostly by examining stone tools. The diversity of languages and cultures that subsequently developed in North America is astonishing.
Consider that at the time of European contact, American Indian languages in North America included more than 50 language families made up of about to languages.
Paleo-Indian groups throughout the Western Hemisphere also demonstrated formidable adaptability. Those that drifted northward developed hunting and gathering skills suited to the environmental extremes of the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions.
