SMGT 315 Sport Law

Sports law is the frame of legal issues in both amateur and professional sports. It overlaps with labor law, contract law, competition or antitrust law, and tort law. The area of law was established as a separate entity only a few decades ago, corresponding with the increased role of player-agents and media scrutiny of sports law topics. This course is designed to provide students the vital understanding of legal issues in sport. Topics include but are not limited to: negligence, liability, risk management, waivers, federal legislation, contract law, employment law, anti-trust legislation, labor law, and intellectual property. Case studies are used to help students apply the material.
