The Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Section of the New York State Bar Association is seeking authors for an upcoming book focusing on issues and topics in Sports Law. Individual chapters within the book will focus on the following subjects:
- NCAA and college/university athletic rules
- Arena football
- Right of publicity and privacy of athletes
- Eminent domain
- Pete Rose/gambling and the Baseball Hall of Fame
- Title IX
- Medical safety issues (i.e. concussions and helmets)
- Other suggested topics
This sounds like a great opportunity for people looking to get published in a legal publication, even if you are not currently practicing in the state of New York. When choosing a topic, keep in mind that the target date for publication is 2013, so you want to choose something that will still be relevant by the book’s release.
Contact Elissa Hecker at [email protected] if you are interested in contributing to the upcoming Sports Law book.
