The Oxford Handbook of American Sports Law (Michael A. McCann ed., 2017).

Abstract: The Oxford Handbook of American Sports Law explores the growing field of sports law in the United States. Through thirty articles by leading scholars, this book explains the essential components of sports law in the twenty-first century. Each article addresses a distinct sports law topic and informs the reader of critical interpretations, theories and practical applications. Legal topics covered in the book span the spectrum of those found in the sports world. They include traditional themes, such as labor and antitrust controversies in professional sports leagues, and contemporary ones, such as whether college athletes ought to be paid and how emerging technologies require rethinking of long-standing sports law conventions.
