About

Overview

Beyond being an athlete or coach, there are numerous careers in the sports industry that job seekers can consider. This volume focuses on the law angle of sports, representing athletes and sports organizations in legal situations, whether personal or professional. Some sports law jobs don't even require law school, making the information valuable to students not interested in long-term education. Career preparation series are a terrific tool for students getting ready to take the next step toward college and beyond.
