Sports Law (3680)
This course addresses the individual contract of the professional athlete, the function of the Players' Union, and the role of the Agent as an intermediary between the player and the franchise with emphasis on the ethical aspects of the Agent's actions. Some aspects of internal league decisions, i.e. expansion, admission of new franchises, antitrust problems and the relationship of the league with its competition will be covered. We will also look at the effect and influence of radio, TV and cable TV on professional athletics, tort liability under certain situations, and an overview of amateur and college athletics in the generic sports picture.
