Sports Litigation Alert Celebrates Three Years as Industry's Leading Sports Law Periodical

Share Article

The legal issues have changed, but little else with regard to Sports Litigation Alert (http://www.sportslitigationalert.com), the sports law industry's leading newsletter.

That feature has been especially attractive to sports law lawyers, who may not be up to speed with the most recent case law on a particular issue

    Coming out 24 times a year, the Alert features the latest case summaries, articles and news briefs, all with a precise focus on the sports law industry.

"There are more general publications out there that address the sports business field, for example, but they typically only touch on sports law," said Holt Hackney, editor and publisher of the Alert. "Our subscription-based newsletter is written by seasoned journalists and expert contributors. It's very important that the opinions and issues are reported in an objective fashion, not skewed to one person's particular view."

Hackney added that one of the reasons the publication has flourished in the sports law industry is the availability of a searchable archive to subscribers.

"That feature has been especially attractive to sports law lawyers, who may not be up to speed with the most recent case law on a particular issue," he said.

Among the practice areas covered in the Alert are assumption of risk, intellectual property, Constitutional issues, contracts, Title IX, NCAA issues, due process and negligence.

Carla Varriale, a partner at Havkins, Rosenfeld, Ritzert & Varriale, said that her search for a sports law publication that would keep her current with the latest sports law developments began and ended with Sport Litigation Alert.

"There is no better way to stay abreast of the issues than Sport Litigation Alert," said Varriale, whose firm (http://www.hrrvlaw.com) serves as outside counsel for a Major League Baseball team and several minor league teams.

The Alert, through Hackney Publications (http://www.hackneypublications.com), is a member of the Sports Lawyers Association (http://www.sportslaw.org), National Sports Law Institute and the Sports and Recreation Law Association (http://srlaweb.org/).
