Historically, sports law has been lumped in generally with other entertainment representation. Today, with the explosion of sporting events and professional leagues, this area of law is deserving of its own focus. There are, after all, special considerations for athletes not relevant to most other areas of entertainment law.
First of all, sports law involves not only aspects of entertainment law, but also contract law and employment law. Also, there are issues related to women (such as Title IX), drugs and drug testing, and injuries that are not a concern in other aspects of entertainment law.
If you are interested in this Specialist, be prepared for the high-pressure, high-stakes experience working with attorneys, agents, and, of course, your athlete-client.
