Essentials of Amateur Sports Law

Synopsis

In this thoroughly revised Second Edition, Glenn Wong updates and adds to his already highly successful First Edition. He addresses the significant changes that have come about in amateur sports law and administrative practice over the past several years. These changes impact amateur athletic associations; athletes' rights; administrative procedures; and the liability of sponsoring organizations. Issues of special topicality, including women's sports, drug testing, and the implications of changing from amateur 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.
