The class will explore and evaluate the application that traditional fields of law, such as, tort, contracts, labor law and antitrust to the specialized field of sports at all levels. The course will question how traditional legal principles apply, when one gives consideration to the special circumstances of the sports industry, e.g., where competitors
collaborate to establish the ground rules of their competitive framework, and where the event is not just of athletic value but also of entertainment value. Important to explore as well are issues relating to gender equity, intellectual property rights, sports medicine, and the influence of television rights and revenues. The class will have open book final exam.
Classroom discussion will be an important part of the course, intended
to utilize current events to augment the casebook materials.
