A comprehensive text on legal issues in sport, "Introduction to Sport Law" delivers the information students need and sport management professionals require in order to navigate liability issues, protect the legal rights of their employees and athletes and manage legal risk in their professions. The outstanding author team presents legal issues in sport using a topical approach that is easily understood by readers with little or no legal background. Using straightforward, jargon-free explanations, this book guides readers through the major legal areas specific to the sport setting including the legal system, tort law, risk management, contract law, agency law, employment law, constitutional law, gender equity, intellectual property and anti-trust law. Through its focus on legal concepts with direct application to the sport manager's role and a straightforward presentation devoid of legalese, this book provides readers with a resource that is more approachable and relevant than other sport law texts. In each chapter, the hypothetical scenarios serve as the basis for moot court group activities. Developed from the facts of several key cases relating to the chapter topic, these moot court experiences provide students with an interactive and lively way of understanding issues that may arise in a court setting and how cases may determine future law.
