The growth of professional sport over recent years has been accompanied by a growing demand for legal services relating to sport. Advising in this industry can prove complex as sports law touches on diverse areas of legislation from contract and competition law to intellectual property and employment law. Clients can range from governing bodies and clubs through to agents, sponsors and sportsmen and women themselves.

Written by experts from the Sports and Leisure Group at Charles Russell LLP, the Sports Law Handbook offers an authoritative and straightforward guide to law and practice. It focuses on two important areas of practice:

  • commercial aspects
  • contractual and employment relationships, including coverage of immigration
  • event management
  • media and sponsorship
  • regulatory and governance issues
  • the regulation of sport
  • the disciplining of those infringing rules
  • the interaction of regulation with the broader legal context.

The book is accompanied by a free CD-ROM containing a selection of the most useful precedent clauses and agreements.
