Summary: Sport Law: A Managerial Approach, is a law textbook that is uniquely organized around management functions. Its clear and informative approach will help readers understand how legal concepts relate to specific managerial functions and will help prepare students to assume a broad range of responsibilities in sport, education, or recreation.

Whether a student becomes a coach or teacher; is a program administrator in a professional program; manages a fitness/heal
th club; or works in a high school, college, Olympic, or professional sport organization, legal concerns will inevitably be woven into his or her managerial concerns. This book shows how knowledge of the law creates a competitive advantage and helps build a more efficient and successful operation that better serves the needs of its constituents. The text is organized around four broad business functions: (1) strategic management/governance, (2) human resources management, (3) operations management, and (4) marketing management. It provides relevant examples and explanations and has an accessible writing style and tone. It covers the legal areas currently suggested in the NASPE/NASSM program approval guidelines and includes such topics as governance in professional sport, governance in Olympic sport, employment discrimination, sporting facility and event management, participant violence, and intellectual property rights.

Special Features of the Text
  • Managerial context tables. Chapter-opening exhibits act as study and organizational tools, identifying the managerial contexts, the major legal issues, the relevant law, and illustrative cases for the chapter and reinforcing the connections between management responsibilities and the legal material.
  • Case opinions, focus cases, and hypothetical cases. Case opinions, both excerpted and summarized, illustrate relevant legal points and help readers understand the dynamic interplay between fact and legal theory; hypothetical cases further highlight topics of interest. The discussion questions that accompany some cases facilitate understanding of the material.
  • Competitive advantage strategies. Focused guidelines based on text discussions help readers understand how to use the law to make sound operational decisions and will assist them in working effectively with legal counsel.
  • Discussion questions, learning activities, and case studies. Thoughtful and thought-provoking questions and activities emphasize important concepts and will help instructors teach and readers review the material. The creative learning activities will stimulate readers, as future sport or recreation managers, to think through problems as they learn to develop policies or procedures.
