Understanding Sports Law
Understanding Sports Law provides a comprehensive overview of the legal issues and concepts that emerge from relationships existing within American sport. It captures the legal doctrine and rules arising from judicial decisions, state and federal legislation, and the private law created by associations and other sport entities. In doing so, Understanding Sports Law examines a vast array of different substantive areas of law as applied in the sports context. These include contracts, torts, intellectual property, antitrust, labor law and constitutional law.
While this treatise's primary focus is on articulating the current legal principles governing relationships in sport, it often discusses the historical evolution of such rules in order to contextualize and foster an understanding of today's controlling principles. It also guides the reader through legal and regulatory developments shaping the future of the sports industry, such as name, image, and likeness marketing opportunities for collegiate athletes and race and gender equity movements across the sports landscape.
This treatise can serve as a helpful companion to a casebook or as a stand-alone resource and will prove useful for law students, law professors, and practitioners alike.
