Long established as the market leading textbook on sports law, this much-anticipated new edition continues to offer a comprehensive and authoritative examination of the legal issues surrounding and governing sport. Alert to the role that sport plays within society throughout, this refocused edition is divided into three core sections: 'Sport, Regulation and Governance', 'Regulation of Commercial Interests in Sport', 'Regulation of the Sports Workplace'. Recent developments covered in this edition include: * the greater competency of EU law interaction with sport under arts 149 TFEU * the new World Anti-Doping Agency code * analysis of recent Court of Arbitration for Sport jurisprudence * the increasing occurrence of ADR mechanisms in resolving sporting disputes * the ongoing impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 * the reform of the transfer system in team sports * engagement with corruption in sport including match fixing * anti-discrimination provisions in sport * greater recourse to law for participant violence * a focus on the 2012 London Olympics and the protection of commercial rights.
Essential reading for students studying sports law, this textbook will also prove useful to sports law practitioners, sports administrators and students on other sports-related courses.
