Legal Concepts in Sport: A Primer

Front Cover
Sagamore, 2000 - Law - 214 pages
When most people think of legal issues in sports, they think about negligence. However, issues such as sexual harassment, corporal punishment, and product liability are of great importance in the world today. Anti-discrimination laws and the concepts involved in topics such as contracting to buy equipment, or deciding to terminate a coach, are imperative for teachers, coaches, and administrators. These legal concepts, and many more, are addressed in this comprehensive text. New features include property law, personal service contracts, sale/purchase of goods, and Equal Pay Act and Title VII. Plus, expanded coverage on sexual harassment, scenarios, memory/self-test tools, and Internet-linked case studies.
