Handbook on International Sports Law
This Handbook presents a comprehensive collection of essays by leading scholars and practitioners in the burgeoning field of international sports law.
The authors address significant legal issues on two gradually converging tracks: the mainstream institutional framework of the law, primarily the International Olympic Committee, international sports federations, regional and national sports authority, and the Court of Arbitration for Sport; and the commercial sports industry. Topics include the institutional structure; fundamental issues, legal principles and decisions within those institutions; mediation, arbitration, and litigation of dispute; doping, gambling and the expanding use of technology in competition; athlete eligibility requirements; discrimination; and protection of athletes. This book also covers a broad range of commercial issues related to competition law and labor markets; media, image, and intellectual property rights, event sponsorship; and players' agents. Comparative analyses of young sports models and practices in North America, Europe and elsewhere supplement the general theme of international sports law.
