Information Institute: Sports Law: An Overview
Legal Information Institute (LII) at Cornell Law School has compiled
a nice collection of sport law sources, including selected federal statutes,
federal regulations, federal judicial decisions, state statutes, and
state judicial decisions. As usual, LII includes a section on “Key
Internet Sources.” One of the things that LII does best is to
include a good topical overview of a variety of legal subjects. The
sports law overview provides a discussion of the division of amateur,
professional, and international sports. The overview also links to related
areas of LII, such as contracts, antitrust, and torts.
