Legal Concepts in Sport: A Primer. 3rd Edition
Carpenter, Linda Jean
Sagamore Publishing LLC
When most people think of legal issues in sport, they think about negligence. However, most professionals will face a much broader range of issues. For instance, topics such as sexual harassment, corporal punishment, drug testing, transportation, and hazing are all of special importance today. Also anti-discrimination laws and the concepts involved in contracting to buy equipment or of deciding to fire a coach are important for today's teacher, coach, and administrator. You'll find these legal concepts and many others discussed in "Legal Concepts in Sport." Written with a conceptual approach, this book presents cases as illustrations that will help the reader practice newly acquired understanding of the principles discussed. If you are a teacher, coach, administrator of a sports program, or a student preparing to enter one of these professions, this book was written for you. An index is included.
