Course Description

Sports lawyering is not entirely what you saw in the movie Jerry Maguire. The agent-player relationship is just a tiny fraction of sports lawyering. This class will cover, in a small part, that relationship, but seeks to broaden the concept of sports law to everything related to the business, law, and regulation of sport. There will be an emphasis on antitrust laws and the impact it has on the business of sport. This class will further combine doctrinal concepts including antitrust, labor law, intellectual property, commissioner’s powers, amateur sports, and immigration law. Students can expect practical teachings by being presented real life scenarios encountered by real sports lawyers and being asked to apply the assigned case law to resolve issues for employers and clients.
