About This Course

The excitement surrounding sports is meant to be focused on amazing plays, incredible assists and raw athletic talent. But as the leagues have developed and the legal issues surrounding them have mounted, more of the excitement seems to unfold in the courtrooms than on the fields.

This CLE course will highlight one such case, that of Donald Sterling, the Los Angeles Clippers owner whose controversial statements may have resulted in a lifetime ban from the NBA and the forcible sale of his team gives us insight into the growing power of the commissioners and the various laws surrounding professional sports leagues. With a comprehensive history of the development of rules that bind the leagues, the relative positions of commissioners and owners, and how property rights, labor and private association laws effect the outcomes, this course will fascinate attorneys and sports fans alike.
