Michael Beloff, Tim Kerr, Marie Demetriou and Rupert Beloff 

Sports law has been growing with increasing rapidity over the years since the first edition of this book published in 1999, regularly making headlines as well as leading to a developing body of law practised by specialist lawyers.

This revised work, by leading practitioners in the field, with a foreword by Lord Coe, provides a coherent framework for understanding the principles of sports law in this area, as well as a deep analysis of its key features. The subject is split into various areas of practice. First regulatory rules, which embrace the constitutional aspect of organised sport including the disciplinary procedures of the various sport governing organisations. Second, broadcasting and marketing resulting from the commercial exploitation, including sponsorship, of sports clubs, sporting events and players. Third player's rights and obligations which embraces a wide range of legal issues including club transfers and player contracts, and issues arising from employment (including discrimination law), personal injury and criminal law. Special attention is paid to the impact of EU and Human Rights law as well as to the influential jurisprudence of the Court of Arbitration for Sport. London 2012 provides an appropriate point at which to provide an overview of the current state of the law, as well as a look to the future.

The target readership extends to solicitors and barristers, legal advisers to sports organisations and clubs, to corporations involved in marketing and sponsorship, and media companies, academics teaching sports law, and sports administrators.

Review from the First Edition
…this book clearly and accessibly opens up a range of issues which should be of interest to anyone, lawyers or otherwise, who has an interest in the position of sport within an increasingly globalising economy.

Review from the First Edition
…the skill of the authors is such that there may well now be a specialist sub-topic, the law of the replica football shirtThis collection of interesting and informative papers will help sports law to find a coherence of its own and it is to be commended.
