Overview

"The third edition of this book provides a detailed examination of the legal issues surrounding and governing sport. Analysing sports law within a socio-economic and cultural context, the role that sport plays within society is foregrounded throughout. While the text focuses on sport in Britain, European and international material is included where appropriate to provide the student with a truly comparative analysis and a fuller picture of the law as it relates to sport." Essential reading for students taking an option in sports law, this textbook will also prove useful to sports law practitioners, sports administrators and students on other sports studies-related courses.
