The seventh edition of this leading casebook explores legal issues in both professional and amateur sports, organized to provide instructors with flexibility to cover selected doctrinal areas or industry sectors. Extended treatment is given to the key subjects of labor, antitrust, intellectual property, and the law of private associations. The casebook also covers the important topic of integrity in sports, the unique office of the league commissioner and its special concerns with the “best interests of sports”; the contract, antitrust, and labor law dimensions of the player-labor market; the role of the player agent in a unionized industry; the economic and legal implications of agreements among league owners and responses to rival leagues; the system of college athletics as governed by the NCAA and subject to Title IX; equity in sports, and the operation of international Olympic sports. Key features include:

  • A new chapter on Sports Integrity, focusing on sports gambling, cheating, and performance enhancing drugs
  • A new chapter on Equity in Sports, exploring the intersection of sports with race, gender, and disability
  • Updated materials on sports league commissioner disciplinary authority and judicial review of sports league arbitration awards
  • Updated materials on the business of sports, with exercises on the business dynamics of sports labor markets and on league decision-making about commercial practices
  • Updated materials on the intersection of intellectual property and sports, including copyright, athlete publicity rights, and trademark.
