    Introduction to Sport Law With Case Studies in Sport Law, Second Edition, provides students with comprehensive information on the fundamental legal issues in sport and sport management using a jargon-free approach that is accessible to readers with little or no legal background. The content covers legal and management matters most commonly found in sport management, including liability issues, protecting the legal rights of athletes and employees, and managing legal risk. These texts contain straightforward examples and case studies that deliver timely information to ground sport law theory in practical applications.

    Fully updated and expanded, Introduction to Sport Law, Second Edition, helps students understand the types of law that are most relevant to sport management professionals. New references and updated court cases throughout the text allow students to see laws and issues from a contemporary point of view to further their comprehension. A new chapter on labor law adds a current perspective for students and sport management professionals.

    Introduction to Sport Law, Second Edition, is organized in a progressive way that takes into account all law categories relevant to sport management. The text presents an overview of the United States legal system, including the court system, the various types of law, and legal resources. It then explores important topics, including labor law, risk management, employment law, gender equity, intellectual property, agency law, tort law, constitutional law, antitrust law, and contract law.

    Each chapter provides students with unique insight on the law at hand, examining its relevance from the perspective of both sport management and law professionals, and provides an understanding of its real-world application. Objectives and a glossary of terms to assist students with comprehension and knowledge retention are included in each chapter, and many examples are used to assist in grounding the theory. In the Courtroom sidebars present discussion questions, comprehension checks, and applied perspectives, while Moot Court Cases give students an opportunity to debate hypothetical scenarios and apply principles that they have recently learned to conceptualize the technicalities of sport law.

    Students also gain access to the e-book Case Studies in Sport Law, Second Edition, by Andrew T. Pittman, John O. Spengler, and Sarah J. Young. This companion resource features abridged versions of 87 court cases that represent many of the multifaceted aspects of sport law, including antitrust law, constitutional law, contract law, employment law, intellectual property, products liability, statutory law, Title IX, and tort law. The relevant cases are noted in each chapter of the text and are followed by review questions that can test student comprehension, be used for review, and prompt in-class discussions. Instructors will find answers to these review questions in the instructor guide, along with a test package and presentation package to assist with course preparation.

    Introduction to Sport Law With Cases Studies in Sport Law, Second Edition, presents a comprehensive examination of legal issues in sport.
