Sports Law and Regulation explores both amateur and professional sports as well as issues common to both industries. A comprehensive collection of cases and materials provides balanced perspective and flexible coverage, while the organization provides instructors the flexibility to cover selected sections or chapters for a separate course in either Amateur Sports Law or Professional Sports Law. The fifth edition includes recent landmark sports precedents, cases, and articles. Materials examining internal governance issues of the MLB, the World Anti-doping Code applying to sports doping, the NCAA infractions process, and concussions and brain trauma have also been included in the updated edition. Sports Law and Regulation contains the appropriate amount of introductory and explanatory materials, notes, and questions to facilitate students’ understanding as well as hypothetical problems for applying new knowledge.
