Takes a close look at major court cases, statutes, and regulations that explore a variety of legal issues in the sports industry

The business of sports has become a multi-million dollar industry with legalities in sports leading the way.

Written from a sport management perspective, rather than from a lawyer’s, this unique book covers all the major areas presented in sports law today including: cases relating to torts, contracts, intellectual property, and agents. Factual scenarios throughout the text allow students to critically examine and apply sport management principles to legal issues facing the sports executive. The early chapters provide an overview of sports law in general terms and explore its impact on race, politics, religion, and everyday affairs. Later chapters address hot button issues such as gender equity, drug testing, and discrimination.
