Overview

In this thoroughly revised Second Edition, Glenn Wong updates and adds to his already highly successful First Editon. He addresses the significant changes that have come about in amateur sports law and administrative practice over the last several years. These changes impact amateur athletic associations; athletes' rights; administrative procedures; and the liability of sponsoring organizations. Issues of special topicality and importance, including women's sports, drug testing, and the issues involved in the change of status to professional, are closely examined.

Amateur sports have expanded rapidly, as have legal issues and ramifications concerning them. Wong's careful, detailed, and clear exposition and analysis both organizes and clarifies fundamental principles affecting athletes, associations, and management in the category of amateur sports. This is an indispensable text, resource and guide.
