The Attorney General's Office maintains the goal of protecting Indiana’s student athletes from unethical practices of athlete agents, and also the protection of those athlete agents that properly register in this state. While there are many entities, including the National Collegiate Athletic Association, athletic conferences, and collegiate athletic departments, that have their own duties and obligations to protect student athletes and properly registered athlete agents, the office is charged with enforcement of Indiana’s Uniform Athlete Agents Act and Deceptive Consumer Sales Act.
In connection with this enforcement mandate, the Attorney General’s Professional Licensing and Homeowner Protection Unit investigates consumer complaints against athlete agents and takes legal action on behalf of the State of Indiana.
