SM 4710 (KI 4710) - Legal Issues in Sport and Recreation


This course will familiarize students with basic legal concepts and relevant legal issues pertaining to athletics, sports, physical education, outdoor education, recreation, and leisure activities. Through text and case law readings, lecture, and discussion the course will focus on negligence within activity itself and with equipment, facilities, supervision, and employees, with the ultimate objective of minimizing and managing legal risks within the industry. Additionally, diverse legal issues will be covered such as contracts, business structures, standards of practice, arbitration and mediation, criminal behavior, emergency care, products liability, and more. Class members also take a field trip to a large event (usually the Boston Marathon) to identify the numerous legal issues involved at such an event. Prerequisites: 60 credits. Offered every year.
