What Is Sports Law?
Sports law refers to various fields of law within the sports industry. This includes issues involving contracts and employment, injuries, media management, and civil litigation, among others.
Common legal issues in the sports industry include:
- Employment contract negotiations
- Salary caps and negotiations
- Infringement of civil rights
- Civil liability and negligence
- Personal injury/wrongful death
- Antitrust issues
- Exculpatory agreements
- Banned substances
- Contract disputes, including breaches of contract
- Equal opportunities
Sports lawyers must have an in-depth understanding of these various areas of law in order to adequately represent their clients’ rights. They should also understand the unique issues sports industry professionals tend to face, including frequent travel, busy schedules, celebrity status, and other matters most typical clients do not deal with.
