Event Details:

The Lourdes University Lifelong Learning program presents Sports & Law at 10 a.m. with Geoffrey Rapp, the Harold A. Anderson Professor of Law and Values, and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at The University of Toledo College of Law. From the 20th century “antitrust exemption” cases in baseball to today’s concussion litigation, sports-related cases have proven challenging for courts on a number of levels. Big money generated by sports after the broadcast revolution means big money at issue in litigation. Professor Rapp, author of Careers in Sports Law, argues that sports cases create challenging conditions for judges who can be affected by emotion and their own experience as fans. He will highlight some of the major areas in which sports jurisprudence has created distinctive rules and bodies of law.
