Product Description:

Case Studies in Sport Lawgives students an inside view of some of the most significant cases in sport law history—while dispensing with the legal jargon. This approach makes the book an ideal supplement for non-law students who want to understand the legal issues without having to wade through the legalese or needing a law school background to understand the cases. The cases are to the point and filled with real-life applications for sport management students.

To ensure that the most relevant cases were included in the text, a panel of experts selected 90 classic and modern cases using the Delphi technique. The cases represent the breadth of sport law affecting interscholastic and recreational programs, school districts, colleges and universities, pro sport franchises, sporting good manufacturers, and governing bodies. This expansive treatment allows students to recognize the considerable presence of legal issues in the sport industry, including the areas that the students are intending to enter.

Case Studies in Sport Lawpresents heavily abridged versions of the cases, allowing students to focus on the relevant details of the case rather than extraneous legal discussion. The text will help students grasp important concepts and generate thought on key topics that relate to the material in sport law texts and on subject matter that will be useful in their careers. These cases are split into the main subject areas common to sport law courses: antitrust law, constitutional law, contract law, employment law, intellectual property, products liability, statutory law, Title IX, and tort law.

Students also have online access to extended versions of the cases, where more detail and depth are provided. This allows instructors the flexibility of guiding students to basic comprehension of a case's facts or to a more complex understanding of the issues involved. Instructors will also gain assistance in teaching with the online instructor guide that includes the extended versions of the cases, answers to the review questions found in the student resource, and a case finder. Both student and instructor resources are available online at www.HumanKinetics.com/CaseStudiesinSportLaw.

To facilitate reading and discussion, Case Studies in Sport Lawoffers

-10 to 12 short-answer questions per case, available electronically, which test students' comprehension and promote discussion;

-brief chapter introductions that note the key issues and prepare the students on what to look for in the cases they are about to read; and

-a case finder, in which students and instructors can easily find the cases that meet their needs; the electronic format allows for cases to be sorted by case dates, key terms, and other variables.
With sport litigation increasing, sport managers need an understanding of the legal environment. Case Studies in Sport Lawis the right text at the right time to supplement a sport law or sport management course and expand students' understanding of sport law issues.

Includes an online study resource!

To assist students using the text, Case Studes in Sport Lawhas a companion online student resource (OSR). Students will receive free access to the resource with the purchase of a new text or e-book, or it may be purchased as a separate component.

The OSR contains extended versions of the cases presented in the text, allowing students the opportunity to grasp the concepts presented. It contains 10 to 12 questions per case, including comprehension questions that test students' understanding of the material and encourage discussion. The questions can be printed out and submitted to the instructor by hard copy or by e-mail. The OSR is available online at www.HumanKinetics.com/CaseStudiesinSportLaw.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
