LAW 922 - Sports Law

Unit(s): 3

In this course we will study the influence different areas of law have on the organization, operation, and economics of the American sports. American sports intersect with current social and cultural issues, and the interleaving of sports and broader issues is accelerating. Throughout the course we will consistently evaluate the connection between sports, society, and the law. We will keep in mind the degree to which sports constituencies fulfill their social responsibility to communities, fans, and the broader public discourse.

The primary academic focus is on antitrust law, employment law, and intellectual property law. We will also study the application of the ADA to sports, and current issues in Title IX. Our study will include legal issues in both professional and intercollegiate sports. The reading and the class discussion during the year will be responsive to current events in sports as they arise. Students are also encouraged to suggest topics for discussion.
