B678 Law and Sports

Description This course is intended to cover a wide array of sports law issues affecting collegiate, amateur, Olympic, and professional athletes and organizations. The material will be divided and taught by two adjunct professors directly engaged in providing legal advice to sports organizations. Some areas of law like antitrust, contract negotiation, contract enforcement, tort, health/safety, and intellectual property will be taught across multiple types of sports organizations, but legal topics unique to an organization also will be covered. Academic and amateurism eligibility, rules infractions, and Title IX will be taught with respect to collegiate and amateur organizations. The unique aspects of collective bargaining, labor, and team/league structure will be part of the professional sports curriculum. The course will be conducted as a combination of lecture, discussion, and class project/presentation. Grading will be on the basis of a final exam, weekly class participation, and a group project/simulation of a sports law proceeding. (2 cr.)
