9781841133676: Sports Law: Second Edition

Since the first edition of this book was published in 1999, UK sports law has been growing with increasing rapidity over the years, regularly making headlines, as well as leading to a developing body of law practiced by specialist lawyers. Written by leading practitioners in the field, with a foreword by Lord Coe, this comprehensive second edition provides a coherent framework for understanding the principles of sports law, as well as a deep analysis of its key features. The subject is split into various areas of practice, including: a) the regulatory rules, which embrace the constitutional aspect of organized sport and include the disciplinary procedures of the various sport governing organizations; b) broadcasting and marketing, resulting from commercial exploitation, such as sponsorship, sports clubs, sporting events, and players; c) the player's rights and obligations, which embrace a wide range of legal issues and topics arising from employment (including discrimination law), personal injury, and criminal law. Special attention is paid to the impact of EU and human rights law, as well as to the influential jurisprudence of the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The London 2012 Olympic Games provides an appropriate point at which to provide an overview of the current state of the law, as well as a look to the future. The target readership extends to: solicitors and barristers, legal advisers to sports organizations and clubs, corporations involved in marketing and sponsorship, media companies, academics who teach sports law, and sports administrators.

Review:

.this edition is hugely well researched, equally well written and provides a holistic approach to the wide-ranging elements that comprise an ever-increasing and ever more popular specialist area of the law.What sets this publication apart from its competitors is the very essence that the reader is benefiting from the duality both of the collective knowledge and hands-on experience of the authorship in all aspects. A considered group opinion is thus put forward and is notably refreshing in the process.It is thoroughly enriched by being logical, intuitive, engagingly written and, above all, insightful.Practitioners, academics and sports administrators alike, cannot fail to be impressed and now everyone concerned in sports law has at their fingertips a handbook they can treat as a working bible. We cannot commend it highly enough. (Mel Goldberg International Sports Law Review, Issue 4)

Any lawyer interested in the field of sports law should have the Second Edition of Sports Law to hand; its lucid, comprehensive yet concise exposition of the relevant jurisprudence is as invigorating as a cold blast of fresh air in a sweaty workout. It reads like a good opinion, in which the author has mastered his subject and speaks authoritatively, with the answer and reasoning set out clearly and understood...Sports Law is written with intellectual rigour combined with a zest for the subject matter. The four authors bring a diversity of juridical backgrounds that instils a breath of vision into the analysis. If you are a busy practitioner looking for the "answer" to a sports law problem, this is the textbook; if you are an academic searching for some underlying principles and theories, there is plenty for you too. (Tim Lord QC Counsel Magazine)

One of the many strengths of this book is its concision and good English. It is well bound, clearly and comprehensively footnoted and with full case indices at the beginning. It is easy to read and at £95 a bargain. Any law firm or sports organisation which has sports legal issues arising from time to time would find this book a very useful addition to library shelves. The authors have struck a lovely balance between in-depth knowledgeable commentary but presented in a way the busy lawyer can understand. It will be my first port of call from now on for any sports law question. (Susan Singleton IT Law Today)

We have now reached the stage where sports law has assumed considerable importance in the many different ways in which it is addressed in this book. And in a country like ours, which is deeply committed to many different sports for entertainment, for personal satisfaction, for fitness, and for livelihoods and international representation, justice in the world of sports is of great importance, for some indeed of overwhelming importance. They, and all those responsible for every sport need to know where they stand, where they might go wrong, and where they need to think before they make their decisions. This book tells them everything they need to know. (The Rt. Hon. The Lord Judge, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales,)

Review from the First Edition
.this book clearly and accessibly opens up a range of issues which should be of interest to anyone, lawyers or otherwise, who has an interest in the position of sport within an increasingly globalising economy. (Raymond Boyle Tottel's Communications Law)

Review from the First Edition
.the skill of the authors is such that there may well now be a specialist sub-topic, the law of the replica football shirtThis collection of interesting and informative papers will help sports law to find a coherence of its own and it is to be commended. (Robert Shields Journal of the Law Society of Scotland)
