    The fourth edition of Sports Law and Regulation: Cases, Materials, and Problems explores both amateur and professional sports as well as issues common to both industries. A comprehensive collection of cases and materials provides balanced perspective and flexible coverage, while the organization provides instructors the flexibility to cover selected sections or chapters for a separate course in either Amateur Sports Law or Professional Sports Law.  The fourth edition includes recent landmark sports precedents, an updated Olympic and international sports law chapter, and the addition of youth sports materials to the high school sports chapter. Materials examining the governance authority of the Big-5 conferences, and Title IX to address student-athlete sexual assault of women have also been included in the updated edition.  Sports Law and Regulation: Cases, Materials, and Problems contains the appropriate amount of introductory and explanatory materials, notes, and questions to facilitate students’ understanding as well as hypothetical problems for applying new knowledge.
