The fourth edition of Legal Concepts in Sport: A Primer provides a unique, concise, up-to-date understanding of the legal concepts vital to teachers, coaches, sports administrators, and indeed all who work in any phase of sport and its related fields such as physical education, fitness, athletics, and recreation.

This book introduces new, cutting-edge scenarios through which the reader can apply and review the legal concepts skillfully presented. Current “headline” contexts from bullying to unionization and licensing, hazing to pregame prayer and workers’ compensation, and waivers to federal anti-discrimination legislation invite the reader to evaluate and apply the legal concepts taught.

The author has taught at the higher education level and is a member of the New York State and United States Supreme Court Bars. She has published numerous books and articles on topics related to both sports and the law.

If you are a teacher, coach, or administrator of a sport program, or a student preparing for one of these professions, this book was written for you!
