This casebook introduces students to the fundamentals of labor, antitrust, and intellectual property law as applied in the professional and amateur sporting industries. It covers the unique office of the league commissioner and special concerns with the "best interests of sports"; the contract, antitrust, and labor law dimensions of the player-labor market; the peculiar institution of the player agent in a unionized industry; the economic and legal implications of agreements among league owners and responses to rival leagues; the system of commercialized college athletics governed by the NCAA and how law impacts individual sports like golf, tennis and boxing; as well as the structure and operation of international Olympic sports. Newly organized to enhance understanding, it also provides means for summary or detailed analysis of antitrust principles, and how these principles can be used to understand business dynamics. It also covers issues of statutory interpretation, administrative law, and torts before a variety of forums, including state and federal courts, agencies, and arbitration. The new edition updates material on the business of sports with the latest antitrust, drug testing and labor relations cases, in addition to new material on international athletics.

For more than two decades, Health Law: Cases, Materials and Problems has defined the field of health law, providing a balanced overview of law as it affects patients, professionals, institutions, and entities that deliver and finance U.S. health care. Health Law comprehensively treats topics concerns such as the oversight of quality (including the latest developments in patient safety), cost control (including consumer-directed health care), guarantees of adequate access to services, exempt-organization tax issues, transactions and relationships among health care professionals and providers, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), and malpractice litigation. Written without a policy bias to fairly reflect all viewpoints, the book considers legal and ethical issues involving death, human reproduction, medical treatment decision making, and medical research. It also explores the government's efforts to control costs and expand access through Medicare and Medicaid and examines government attempts to police anticompetitive activities, fraud, and abuse. Using carefully edited primary materials and effective classroom-tested problems, the book exposes students to the core issues in health law.

Negotiating and Drafting Sports Venue Agreements (2nd Edition) is an engaging teaching tool for instructors wanting to teach the "best negotiating and drafting practices" for students who want to learn how to draft sports venue-related agreements. It does so by providing immersive exercises illustrating how to negotiate and draft the key clauses of each of these agreements and by creating a unique Hypothetical negotiation at the end of each chapter. The book is a âeoemust haveâe for any sports law practitioner wanting to learn more about these state-of-the art sports venue drafting practices. Beginning with the drafting of the seminal lease agreement, the book leads the reader, in seriatim fashion, through a series of "best practices" negotiating and drafting techniques for every major sports venue-related agreement including: naming rights agreements; presenting sponsorship agreements; media rights and concessions agreements; agreements with state-operated entities; and the newest addition âe" sports franchise asset purchase agreements; etc. Hypothetical, immersive negotiating/drafting exercises are included in each chapter, with exemplary assignments available in the Teachers Manual of this 2nd Edition. Also included in this New Edition are "exemplar" form agreements, as well as an introductory chapter on the standard terms and conditions found in virtually any sports venue agreements. The new edition further adds a series of study guides delving into the key clauses of each of these agreements, so that the reader will have the knowledge necessary to negotiate and draft each of the agreements covered throughout the book. In particular, this 2nd Edition includes detailed exploration of non-traditional revenue agreements, such as sports venue concert agreements and celebrity softball game agreements (such new agreement examples are included in the Teachers Manual), so that year-round revenues of a facility or venue can be maximized for the sports venue owner, operator and counsel.

This book is an interactive, hands-on guide to negotiating, drafting and litigating agreements in the context of representation of professional athletes. The book begins with the negotiation and drafting of a standard form athlete representation agreement. In so doing, it details all of the NCAA amateurism rules and the legal do's and don'ts relating to the recruiting of pre-professional athletes. Subsequent chapters track the typical progression of a successful professional athlete's career: the drafting, negotiating and (where necessary) litigating of product endorsement and license agreements in the increasingly important context of protecting professional athletes' rights of publicity. Interactive group negotiation/drafting hypotheticals are also provided in the areas of fantasy sports, and of representing the "mature athlete" who is nearing the end of his career. The book concludes with a Jerry McGuire-type litigation hypothetical and settlement agreement negotiation exercise involving the "super-agent" entering and exiting the "mega agency." A companion Teacher's Manual provides exemplar class plans and student responses to each chapter's hypotheticals. The Manual will allow any instructor to use the text on a stand-alone basis, or as a companion to Weiler's Sports and the Law, or other sports law casebooks. The Second Edition also includes new Agent/Athlete Representation Agreements and new Athlete Licensing and Product Endorsement Agreements.
