Summary: The world of sports law is a world full of mystery and intrigue. Welcome to this world. This slim volume is your road map on a perilous journey replete with contracts, torts, antitrust, constitutional implications, labor law and taxes - all elements that appear to be mutually contradictory. Still, in the chaotic universe through which sports law ruminates, these diverse strands peaceably coincide.
This book is not intended to be a full-blown treatise, but i ...show moret will serve as a readable outline to a field that has many divergent sub-topics. In Sports law, you really can't tell the forest from the trees, because there are just so many trees, and the ''trees'' themselves are all readily recognizable as separate forests in their own right (e.g., contracts, torts, constitutional law, labor law, etc.).
This Nutshell will explain all elements of Sports Law in an organized, reasonably coherent manner. Sports Law flows through our lives in many different formats and impacts on many different people: from agents to lawyers to athletic directors to fans. This book is a review of sports law; it can also be used as a course book, a student outline, a primer for would be professionals (whether agent, athletic director, athlete or coach), or just a nice way to mull away an afternoon.
