Sports Law / Edition 1by Adam Epstein
Pub. Date: 11/27/2002
Publisher: Cengage Learning
The goal of this text is to provide easy access to legal issues involved in sport and the sport industry. The book's target audience is the nonlawyer and the non-law student, particularly sport management, legal studies, and paralegal students. Some chapters, such as a chapter on sports contracts, introduce the reader to skill sets, while others, such as the one on sports torts, present a more general view of that area of the law. Special attention is given to the needs of students who might study law only once during their academic career. Cases, chapter questions, and summaries are included. Epstein is chair of the Legal Studies Department at South College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR

I have just began to read this book and I can't stop. The sports world is such a mystery and this book helps me understand it. Most books start out with a warm up of hey this is the law and blah,blah,blah...this books says hello want to be a sports agent right in the first chapter. I have to say this book does not intimidate me as a reader it is more of a guide to sports and the law. A must buy if you are even thinking about becoming a sports agent or sports paralegal.
I am a college professor and I have been asked to teach sports law on several occasions to my students. I normally just use a course packet that I put together on my own primarily because other texts are SO costly. This text for the money is the best out there and I will give it a try the next time I teach the course.
I have been looking for a textbook in the area of sports law that is not just a bunch of cases thrown together like a puzzle for the reader to piece them together and figure out what it means. For the price, this book is exactly what I have been looking for for years. Don't get me wrong: other books are good, too, but this one is written so well that I did not want to put it down! I can't say that for many-if any-textbooks. I highly recommend this even for someone who does not take a course in the area. If you enjoy sports and legal issues, you will like this production.
