Legal Information Institute: Sports Law: An Overview
www.law.cornell.edu/topics/sports.html

The 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.
