Sports Law Seminar: The Litigator’s Perspective

Catalog No.: 661

Course Description:

This course approaches Sports Law from the perspective of the litigator. Sports have become a major industry in the U.S. and worldwide. Therefore, virtually every legal discipline applies to sports and the several of the more commonly applied disciplines will be considered, such as intellectual property law, tort law, class action law, disability law, criminal law and Constitutional law. Also, there are bodies of laws and rules unique to sports, such as those applying to athletic associations, amateurism and the Olympics, and these will also be considered. No prerequisites. Students who have taken Sports Law Seminar: The Agent’s Perspective in the fall MAY enroll in this course. This course will cover topics not covered in the fall Sports Law course. Limited enrollment.
