Sports Law introduces the body of law that governs all sporting activities in Australia - from the local clubs to the professional commercial leagues - examining the areas of law that apply
to sport such as tort, criminal liability, contract, intellectual property, marketing, trade, and competition.
Supported by contemporary examples and discussions, the third edition explores recent events such as the ASADA investigation into the use of supplements by the Essendon Football Club, and highlights key issues of importance in sport such as concussion, gambling, governance, and doping.
This text presents complex legal concepts in clear and engaging language, offering a comprehensive analysis of Australian and international sports law, and helps students understand how the law applies to sporting activities with end-of-chapter discussion questions and hypothetical scenarios.
