Sport Law: A Managerial Approach, third edition, merges law and sport management in a way that is accessible and straightforward.

Concise explanations, coupled with relevant industry examples and cases, give readers just enough legal doctrine to understand the important concepts that apply to each area. This book will help prepare students as they get ready to assume a broad range of responsibilities in sport, education, or recreation.

Whether readers work as coaches or teachers; administer professional programs; manage fitness/health clubs; or assume roles in a high school, college, Olympic, or professional sport organization, legal concerns will inevitably be woven into their managerial concerns. This book provides knowledge of the law that helps create a competitive advantage and build a more efficient and successful operation that better serves the needs of its constituents.

About the Author:

Linda A. Sharp, J.D., received her juris doctorate from Cleveland Marshall College of Law and practiced corporate law in Ohio for seven years before continuing her studies at Kent State University in the areas of sport management, higher education administration, and sociology. After teaching in Indiana University's sport management program, where she also held a joint appointment with the law school, she is now at the University of Northern Colorado as a professor in the UNC Sport Administration graduate program, teaching sport law and ethics. Throughout her career, she has lectured on more than 75 occasions on legal topics related to sport, recreation, and physical activity for audiences ranging from academics in sport law, sport management and business law to university counsel, student affairs professionals, athletic directors, coaches, and managers of health and fitness clubs. Her lecture and workshop topics focus primarily on contract and tort law issues related to educational sport. Sharp is also an affiliated consultant with NCHERM, the National Center for Higher Education Risk Management.

Anita M. Moorman, J.D., is a professor in Sport Administration at the University of Louisville where she teaches sport law and legal aspects of sport. She has a law degree from Southern Methodist University and, prior to her academic pursuits, practiced law in Oklahoma City in the areas of commercial and corporate litigation for ten years. She also holds an MS degree in sport management from the University of Oklahoma and a BS in political science from Oklahoma State University. Moorman was admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court in 2000 when she served as co-counsel for nine disability sport organizations and prepared an amicus curiae brief in the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act case involving the disabled professional golfer Casey Martin and the PGA Tour (Martin v. PGA Tour, Inc.).

Cathryn Claussen, J.D., earned her Master's degree in Sport Studies at the University of Iowa and her law degree from Georgetown University Law Center. She has taught at Bowling Green State University and Clemson University, and is now the Director of the Sport Management Program at Washington State University. She brings a wealth of practical experience to her teaching and scholarship, including collegiate coaching experience and service as a race director for a 5/10K race and as co-director of a golf tournament, as well as having played tennis professionally. Additionally, she chaired Bowling Green State University's Equal Opportunity Compliance Committee, as well as the Gender Equity subcommittee of BGSU's Intercollegiate Athletics Committee.

Review:

Compared to similar books, this text is clearly superior in terms of its practical approach and explanation of legal concepts. --Scott Bukstein, University of Central Florida

The book is easily digestible, and much of that comes from the ability to relate the topic to specific roles and functions. This allows for some creative exercises and guest speakers where, again, students connect theory to its applicability in the real world. Many other sports law texts fail to put their material into such a context. --Joshua Gordon, University of Oregon Lundquist College of Business and Sports Conflict Institute (SCI)

Many students are anxious about taking a law course. The authors were able to get through that anxiety by using a style that speaks to the students and what they need to know in order to be successful in the sport industry. . . . The chapters contain solid case studies that further explain the legal points of the chapter. --Dina Gentile, Endicott College
