Front Cover
Aspen Publishers, Jan 1, 2005 - Law - 1075 pages
This casebook covers both amateur and professional sports -- as well as issues common to both industries -- and is suitable as the primary text for either a two- or three-hour sports law course. Sports Law and Regulation: Cases, Materials, and Problems takes a penetrating look at the regulation of interscholastic athletics, intercollegiate athletics, Olympic and international sports issues, professional athletics, and agents, as well as gender and racial equity.
The authors reveal the scope and depth of the area while keeping their presentation coherent and concise:
principal cases include both leading historical and major recent sports law cases
ancillary legal doctrines and minor cases are discussed in detailed introductory and historical materials for each chapter
offers analysis of the developing legal principles governing the amateur and professional sports industries
includes an appropriate amount of introductory and explanatory materials, notes, and questions that facilitate student understanding
raises some of the deeper philosophical, sociological, psychological, and economic policy issues that arise in the sports context, mirroring the practice of law in the 21st century generally, and heightening student understanding of sports-related legal issues
students gain opportunities to apply new knowledge and develop their skills through a series of hypothetical problems as well as exercises in client counseling, negotiation, and document drafting exercises
To enable effective teaching, the authors make their casebook:
flexible, so instructors can cover selected sections or chapters for a general sports law course or separate courses in either Amateur Sports Law or Professional Sports Law
comprehensive, with coverage of a wide variety of legal issues affecting the sports industry
adaptable for use in both law school and graduate-level sports law courses
part of a complete teaching package that includes a detailed Teacher's Manual with answers to all questions and problems, as well as sample syllabi
