Summary: Audiences: A textbook for undergraduate courses in sport law. A reference for libraries; sport administrators; sport officials; event, facility, and sport managers; and paralegals researching legal issues in sport.

A comprehensive text on legal issues in sport, Introduction to Sport Law delivers the information students will need and sport management professionals require in order to navigate liability issues, protect the legal rights of their employees and ...show more athletes, and manage legal risk in their professions. Filled with real-world cases and examples, the text provides students with timely and relevant information that will help build enthusiasm for their future careers.

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, Introduction to Sport Law 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 antitrust law. The text is designed for sport law courses within a sport management program and uses concise examples relevant to sport managers.

Introduction to Sport Law begins with an overview of the legal system and presentation of legal foundations to give readers a context in which to consider subsequent chapters. Through its focus on legal concepts with direct application to the sport manager's role and a straightforward presentation devoid of legalese, Introduction to Sport Law provides readers with are source that is more approachable and relevant than other sport law texts:

- Within each chapter, a brief introduction places the topic within a practical context.
- Legal perspectives of each topic are presented with clear explanations of related concepts.
- Extended, sport-related examples obtained from case law provide application of legal concepts, stimulate discussion about the application of law to current events, and enable students and sport managers to recognize possible areas of liability.
- A running glossary provides convenient access to definitions of unfamiliar terms.
- Chapters conclude with a brief recapitulation of important points, discussion questions, and hypothetical sport law scenarios.

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. As students call hypothetical witnesses to testify and argue various sides of a case, they are challenged to conceptualize and apply the concepts of sport law.

When adopted as a course textbook, Introduction to Sport Law also includes online access to an instructor guide, test package, and presentation package. The online instructor guide provides the structure and offers suggestions for group activities of the moot court cases in each chapter. The test and presentation packages fully incorporate and enhance the information presented in the text.

Introduction to Sport Law provides the most comprehensive and understandable presentation of legal issues in sport. This approach, specifically geared toward readers without a law background, allows students not only to learn the important concepts of sport law but also to get excited about a topic that can otherwise seem dry and technical. The incorporation of many real-world examples will assist readers in developing a knowledge base with clear application to their future or current sport professions.
