About the Book

In this follow-up to his popular book, Clubhouse Lawyer: Law in the World of Sports, author and attorney Frederick Day delivers an insightful and compelling look at the sports cases that make the headlines.

Day brings the law into the arenas and onto the playing fields with his in-depth discussions about legal issues that directly affect those involved in the sporting world. The book comprises two sections, tort cases and contract cases. In both Day takes a closer look at famous incidents (such as the November 2004 Pistons-Pacers "Basket-brawl"), but also at obscure events from the history of sports. His analysis of each case is simple and straightforward, and his easygoing style will have you intrigued from the start.

Sports fans and those interested in the legal aspects of sports will both benefit from Day's study. If you're looking to learn what the law says about the conduct of athletes on the court and in the locker room, take a dive into Sports and Courts.
