Long established as the market leading textbook on sports law, this new edition continues to offer a comprehensive and authoritative examination of the legal issues surrounding and governing sport. Alert to the role that sport plays within society throughout, this edition is divided into four core Parts: Governance & Sport, Commercial Regulation, Sports Workplace and Safety in Sport.

Written by eminent experts in the field, this book is the go-to resource for academics teaching and researching sports law. The book will use carefully selected extracts to provide students with a contextual understanding of each topic, while offering clear avenues for further reading and research.

Sports law is an optional module, which is most commonly taught in the second and third year of the LLB. It is a fast-growing subject, with student numbers averaging around 50 per year.
