Abstract: With an accessible approach free of legal jargon, Introduction to Sport Law With Case Studies in Sport Law, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive examination of the fundamental legal issues commonly found in sport and sport management. Even students with little to no legal background will understand law topics relevant to the sport industry through the text...s straightforward examples and case studies that demonstrate sport law theory through real-world applications.Organized to cover all law categories that are most critical to the management of sport, the text first presents an overview of the United States legal system, including the court system, the various types of law, and legal resources. Students will then explore important topics such as risk management, employment law, gender equity, intellectual property, and constitutional law, examining the relevance of the law at hand to real-world applications across the field of sport management.This updated third edition allows students to increase their comprehension by looking at laws and issues through timely, modern points of view. New content reflects important topics and current legal issues, including the Equal Pay Act; the Sports Broadcasting Act; athlete safety and equipment concerns; name, image, and likeness (NIL) laws; antitrust litigation, unionization, and collective bargaining; and transgender athlete participation in sport. The updated content addresses contemporary challenges to constitutional law, including the First Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment, and it examines how budget problems related to COVID-19 resulted in cutting sports and raised Title IX issues.Each chapter of Introduction to Sport Law, Third Edition, also directs students to relevant cases in the included ebook, Case Studies in Sport Law, Third Edition, by Andrew T. Pittman, John O. Spengler, and Sarah J. Young. Featuring abridged versions of 93 court cases, all carefully curated to provide real-life applications representing many of the multifaceted aspects of sport law, the ebook also includes review questions for each case to test comprehension and prompt in-class discussion.
