This popular casebook is divided into three parts:

Part I focuses on legal issues arising out of amateur sports. Particular emphasis is placed on the roles, rules, and activities of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The issues addressed include amateur sports associations, gender equity in amateur athletics, and amateur sports and antitrust law.

Part II addresses with legal issues in professional sports. The chapters in this part deal with professional sports leagues, labor relations and antitrust law, enforcement of sports contracts, representation of professional athletes, negotiation of sports contracts, and stadium and arena issues.

Part III presents issues that arise in both professional and amateur sports. The subjects analyzed include criminal liability of sports participants, tort issues, intellectual property issues, health and disability issues, drug testing, and Olympic and international sports rules and regulations.

The new Seventh Edition retains the problem-based approach that has helped make this book so popular for all these years. Recent developments that have broken new ground are also included as featured cases and/or the subject of new problems. For example:
•   The U.S. Supreme Court's decision in American Needle, Inc. v. Nat'l Football League, earned its way into the Seventh Edition as a featured case.
•   The O'Bannon v. NCAA line of pending cases is addressed as a problem in both the antitrust materials and the intellectual property materials;
•   The emergence of a body of international sports law -- a "lex sportiva" -- gains coverage in this new edition through the addition of new problems and recently decided CAS cases; and
•   The class action lawsuit, Brady v. NFL, filed in April 2011, challenging various NFL player restraints and many of the questions this case raises are noted in Chapter 6.
