by Kenneth L. Shropshire, The Business Of Sports Agents Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Business Of Sports Agents books, Successful sports agents are comfortable with high finance and intense competition for the right to represent talented players, and the most respected agents are those who can deal with the pressures of high-stakes negotiations in an honest fashion. But whereas rules and penalties govern the playing field, there are far fewer restrictions on agents. In The Business of Sports Agents, Kenneth L. Shropshire, Timothy Davis, and N. Jeremi Duru, experts in the fields of sports business and law, examine the history of the sports agent business and the rules and laws developed to regulate the profession. They also consider recommendations for reform, including uniform laws that would apply to all agents, redefining amateurism in college sports, and stiffening requirements for licensing agents. This revised and expanded third edition brings the volume up to date on recent changes in the industry, including: —the emergence and dominance of companies such as Creative Artists Agency and Wasserman Media Group —high-profile cases of agent misconduct, principally Josh Luchs, whose agent certification was revoked by the NFLPA —legal challenges against the NCAA that may fundamentally change the definition of amateurism —changes to agent regulations resulting from new collective bargaining agreements in all of the major professional sports —evaluation of the effectiveness of the Uniform Athlete Agents Act (2000) to regulate agent conduct —issues faced by the increasing number of agents representing athletes who work abroad as well as athletes from abroad who work in the United States. Whether aspiring sports agent, lawyer, athlete seeking an agent, or simply interested in understanding the world of sports representation, the reader will find in The Business of Sports Agents the most comprehensive overview of the industry as well as a straightforward analysis of its problems and proposed solutions.

by Timothy Davis, Sports And The Law Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sports And The Law books, Sports law literature has evolved over the last twenty years as writers have successfully grappled with the myriad of legal and quasi-legal issues that arise in the context of sports. As a result of their efforts, scholars addressing these topics have heightened our understanding of the complex factual, legal, and social issues that sports matters generate. This anthology seeks to continue this development. It includes excerpts, primarily of law review articles, that address the broad dimensions of sports and the law.Rather than simply explain the law, the excerpts contained in Sports and the Law seek also to examine the multiple variables that have influenced the development of the law of sports. After presenting contrasting views on whether sports law represents a discrete substantive area of law, the anthology explores several sports settings and the application of legal rules to them. These include: business and economic (e.g., antitrust, taxation, intellectual property, and franchise relocation); institutional relationships (formation and governance of sports leagues and student athlete/university relationships); labor (collective bargaining); constitutional (right to participate and drug testing); social and ethical (racism, gender equity, agent regulation, and ADA); and torts (educational and medical malpractice, assumption of risk, and workers' compensation).This anthology makes accessible articles that enhance the reader's understanding of topics traditionally covered in sports law classes, as well as topics that typically escape class coverage.
