Sports Law
Not available
The second edition of this comprehensive and innovative book provides a detailed examination of the legal issues surrounding and governing sport. Sports Law is analysed within the socio-economic and cultural context of the role that sport plays in society. The books coverage reflects the growth and importance of sports law as a distinct area of legal inquiry. Its focus is on Britain, but as sport is increasingly Europeanised and globalised, so too is sports law. European and international comparative material and analysis are therefore included where appropriate.

This expanded second edition includes new chapters on the governance of sport, including the growth in sports-related ADR mechanisms and the commercial regulation of sport, particularly in the area of competition law. The impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 is examined in detail. The book is divided into five sections and sub-divided into chapters to provide a coherent analysis of the breadth of issues that make up sports law. There are many extracts from relevant primary and secondary source material, together with a full analysis of each area.

This book is useful to a range of readers including sports law practitioners, sports administrators and all students of sports law and sports studies-related courses.
