About Sport: Law and Practice

Sport: Law and Practice, Fourth Edition is the leading legal title covering sports law and practice in the UK, and at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

It serves both as a comprehensive statement of applicable law and precedent, and as a very practical guide to circumnavigating a complex sector.

The new edition retains and updates all of the key chapters from previous editions, including the extended sections on challenges to the actions of sports governing bodies, and on anti-doping regulation and enforcement (with an introduction to the new 2021 World Anti-Doping Code). There are important updates to the chapters on Regulating Financial Fair Play, Misconduct, Safeguarding in Sport, the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and Media Rights and Sport.

The Fourth Edition also adds brand new chapters dealing with:

-Effective sports regulation (including the first ever comprehensive discussions of the 'general principles of law' applied by CAS panels in determining challenges to sports regulations, as well as of the principles of interpretation of sports regulations).
-Best practice in sports governance (describing developments such as the strengthening of the competence and independence of boards and the emergence of independent integrity units).
-Data protection law and sport (including discussion of the provisions of the Data Protection Act 2018 that facilitate the sharing of personal data by sports bodies for integrity-related purposes).
-Exploiting commercially valuable sports data (explaining how sports rights-holders can fashion commercial agreements to meet the demand for sports data from the betting industry and others).
-ESports (the first comprehensive treatment of the legal and practical principles underlying the regulation and commercial exploitation of the increasingly important ESports sector).

Readers will also benefit from practice tips, precedent clauses, detailed explanations of key practical issues, and step-by-step analysis.

This is an essential title for all sports law practitioners (solicitors and barristers, common law and civil lawyers), sports governing bodies, event organisers, clubs, participants, sports agencies and commercial partners, arbitrators, universities, and students.

Reviews

“No self-respecting Sports Lawyer, therefore, should be without a copy of this fine Book!” –  Prof Dr Ian Blackshaw, International Sports Lawyer, Academic, Author, Global Sports Law and Taxation Reports (Review of previous edition)

Sport: Law and Practice remains the most comprehensive text for UK sports law...I expect to see this excellent book on sports law practitioner shelves up and down the country” –  Kevin Carpenter, Solicitor, Sport, Media and Entertainment, Hill Dickinson LLP, Sport and Law Journal (Review of previous edition)

“This volume deserves a place not only in the libraries of law schools, universities, and law firms, but also in an easily accessible position on the shelves and desks of individual sports lawyers, solicitors, barristers, leaders of governing bodies, sports agencies, and clubs, and in the libraries of commercial actors invested in sports, around the world...I must give this volume two thumbs up, way up” –  Jeffrey Benz, Law in Sport (Review of previous edition)

“…no serious practitioner in this area could deprive him or herself of the expertise displayed by the writers of these chapters… Lewis and Taylor may not be a book for a philosopher of sporting ethics, but for those whose focus is on the arena, not the ivory tower, it has everything to offer.” –  International Sports Law Review

“Lewis & Taylor's 4th edition of Sport: Law & Practice is not the word of God: it is indeed “merely” the assembling of keen insights and in-depth reference materials from an all-star cast of quite brilliant humans. But if not scripture, it is the most authoritative commentary on sports law in the English-speaking world. I would not dream of writing about a matter of European or British sports law without consulting it. In addition to updating cases, the new edition provides sharper analyses (sometimes provocative) that justify its acquisition for users of earlier editions and those entering the specialization today.” –  Professor Stephen F. Ross, Penn State University
