Law Library Books of the Month

Fundamentals of Sports Law

By Walter T. Champion, Jr.

As one of two titles recently added to the San Francisco Law Library’s new sports law collection, Fundamentals of Sports Law provides a concise overview of this dynamic area of law in a readable one-volume book for sports lawyers, students, and administrators alike. The practice-oriented approach of this manual focuses primarily on those topics that frequently arise in the daily business routines of sports lawyers and professionals such as liability, injuries, defamation and invasion of privacy, workers’ compensation, and eligibility to participate. The less routine matters of contracts, antitrust, labor law, intellectual property, and international law are also discussed. Online access to this manual via WestlawNext is available at the Law Library. For further insights into sports law, use together with Law of Professional and Amateur Sports. 


Law of Professional and Amateur Sports

By Gary A. Uberstine, Editor 

Law of Professional and Amateur Sports is a comprehensive four-volume treatise covering traditional legal topics in sports law such as contracts, torts, and workers’ compensation, as well as more sports-specific topics such as eligibility and disciplinary rules, and player-agent regulation. This treatise has been written with the sports law practitioner in mind, but will appeal to school athletic departments and administrators, sports media personnel, and the sports enthusiast as well. Each chapter has been written by an expert in the particular area of law, and provides an overview of the topic with relevant case law and other authoritative sources cited, practice-oriented insights and advice, and many useful sample forms.
