This popular casebook is divided into three parts:
- Part I focuses on legal issues arising out of amateur sports. Particular emphasis is placed on the roles, rules, and activities of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The issues addressed include amateur sports associations, gender equity in amateur athletics, and amateur sports and antitrust law.
- Part II addresses with legal issues in professional sports. The chapters in this part deal with professional sports leagues, labor relations and antitrust law, enforcement of sports contracts, representation of professional athletes, negotiation of sports contracts, and stadium and arena issues.
- Part III presents issues that arise in both professional and amateur sports. The subjects analyzed include criminal liability of sports participants, tort issues, intellectual property issues, health and disability issues, drug testing, and Olympic and international sports rules and regulations.
From the beginning, the authors believed that a skills-oriented problem approach was the best way to approach the study of sports law. While the book is conventional in many ways, offering textual explanation, leading cases, and notes and questions, skills-based problems are featured throughout.
The Eighth Edition emphasizes their shared commitment to skills-based teaching and includes new features, including "sidebars," "capstone problems," and case files for simulated hearings. The sidebars are designed to spur class discussion. The capstone problems and case simulations are designed to facilitate comprehensive review and experiential learning.
