Description
This course will concentrate primarily on the legal regulation of major professional team sports in the United States.  Topics will include contract enforcement, player movement and restraints, team movements and restraints, the powers of the commissioner, and the (limited) regulation of agents.  To a much lesser extent the course will deal with NCAA regulation (especially eligibility and gender equity) and individual sports.  Labor Law and Antitrust are helpful, but not required.  This is a course best taken in the student's third year.  A knowledge of (and enthusiasm for) sports will be assumed.
