The Legal Information Institute (LII) at Cornell Law School has compiled a nice collection of sport law sources, including selected federal statutes, federal regulations, federal judicial decisions, state statutes, and state judicial decisions. As usual, LII includes a section on "Key Internet Sources." One of the things that LII does best is to include a good topical overview of a variety of legal subjects. The sports law overview provides a discussion of the division of amateur, professional, and international sports. The overview also links to related areas of LII, such as contracts, antitrust, and torts.
Megalaw.com provides a sports law web page that includes links to recent U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. Courts of Appeals sports law decisions and relevant federal sports law statutes and regulations. There is also a good collection of links to other sports law websites.
