About this item
Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools.Given an increasingly litigious sports landscape, it’s vital that future sport managers fully understand the impact of the legal aspects of sports and the strategies that may be used to manage them. Legal Aspects of Sports, Second Edition provides an accessible introduction to the legal aspects of sports relevant to future sport managers and coaches, streamlined in such a way that emphasizes content most relevant to sport management. Using the foundation of Patrick K. Thornton’s Sports Law, this text has been thoroughly revised to reflect the ever-evolving field of sports law, touching on such hot-button issues as discrimination and drug testing in sports. The Second Edition has also been completely reorganized to improve the flow of the material, beginning with a discussion of the role of sports in society and followed by coverage of torts, contracts, and a range of relevant topics. Case studies relevant to each chapter can now be found online and are accessible through the Navigate 2 platform.
