Sport plays a large part in modern Australian society and culture. As professionalism has developed, those involved with sport, be they players, managers, administrators or supporters, are increasingly looking to the law to protect their rights and resolve their problems. This textbook examines all the various principles of law, including tort and criminal liability, taxation, contract, intellectual property and industrial relations, and the role they play in the world of Australian sport.
- Contemporary cases, photographic evidence and common interest subject questions are used throughout the text to ignite students’ curiosity and illustrate how the law operates in practice.
- It is Australia-specific with reference to international examples where relevant.
- Written in a clear and concise format that will ensure difficult legal concepts are clearly explained for both law and non-law students.
