Sport and Entertainment Law provides a clear and concise account of the law relating to sport and entertainment. It provides background material to explain what actually is sport and entertainment, how the law works, governance and tribunals. An overview of the relevant core areas of law, such as contract, torts and competition law, is provided in the respective chapter, along with a discussion as to how that law applies to sport and entertainment. Each chapter contains the relevant legislation for each jurisdiction. While the emphasis is on Australian cases, overseas cases are also included when appropriate.
