Law of Sports and Entertainment

An exploration of the legal and practical problems facing sports franchises, sports leagues and associations, athletes and other sports competitors, entertainment companies, entertainers, and businesses that have contractual or other relationships with the above. Industries studied will include major league baseball, professional football, professional basketball, professional hockey, professional golf, auto racing, television, motion pictures, music, and newer industries, such as professional roller hockey. Other industries in which students indicate an interest may also be studied. The law of torts, antitrust, labor relations, and intellectual property (including copyright, trademark, and right of publicity) will be discussed, with a special focus on contract law. This will include examinations of actual contracts and other agreements used by the sports and entertainment industries, such as agreements between professional athletes and leagues, agreements between entertainers and entertainment companies, and endorsement contracts. The class will be a combination of lecture by the instructor, student-led discussions of legal and practical issues, and team presentations. For example, a group of students may be required to prepare a presentation of legal and practical issues concerning copyright issues or antitrust issues. Students not members of the presentation team will be expected to participate and play roles assigned by the presentation team. Each student will be required to contribute to at least two team presentations.
