In this Second Edition, Peter A. Carfagna (former Chief Legal Officer at IMG and now a Visiting Lecturer in Sports Law at Harvard Law School), expands upon the first edition of the "Legal Evolution of America's Three 'Major Leagues'" by providing unique insights into the most significant Sports Law developments that have occurred since the publication of his first edition. In particular, the reader will note in-depth treatments of the Supreme Court's landmark "American Needle" decision, as well as of the controversial "Star Caps" case which challenged the NFL's drug testing policies. The revised text and related Hypotheticals also illuminate the increasing tension between players' "social media"/"publicity rights," and the oftentimes conflicting rights claimed by the Major Leagues and their teams. Similarly, "franchise relocation" updates are provided, including a special section regarding Major/Minor League Baseball's convoluted franchise relocation issues. A new Appendix containing a history of Major League "work stoppages" is particularly timely, given the current state of collective bargaining negotiation ongoing within each of the Three Major Leagues. Another new Appendix contains a revised Course Study Guide, which should make the book accessible not only as an introduction to law school faculty or students considering a first course in sports law, but also to undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in sports law or marketing.

Clubhouse Lawyer provides an interesting and informative look at the role that the law plays in sports. Using compelling anecdotes, Clubhouse Lawyer explains legal concepts in a way that will amuse and entertain fans and athletes alike. Clubhouse Lawyer is a timely-and timeless-examination of the way the law shapes events on the playing field and in the locker room.

Die kraftvolle und inspirierende Autobiografie der ehemaligen First Lady der USA Michelle Obama ist eine der überzeugendsten und beeindruckendsten Frauen der Gegenwart. Als erste afro-amerikanische First Lady der USA trug sie maßgeblich dazu bei, das gastfreundlichste und offenste Weiße Haus zu schaffen, das es je gab. Sie wurde zu einer energischen Fürsprecherin für die Rechte von Frauen und Mädchen in der ganzen Welt, setzte sich für einen dringend notwendigen gesellschaftlichen Wandel hin zu einem gesünderen und aktiveren Leben ein und stärkte außerdem ihrem Ehemann den Rücken, während dieser die USA durch einige der schmerzlichsten Momente des Landes führte. Ganz nebenbei zeigte sie uns noch ein paar lässige Dance-Moves, glänzte beim „Carpool Karaoke“ und schaffte es obendrein auch, zwei bodenständige Töchter zu erziehen – mitten im gnadenlosen Blitzlichtgewitter der Medien. In diesem Buch erzählt sie nun erstmals ihre Geschichte – in ihren eigenen Worten und auf ihre ganz eigene Art. Sie nimmt uns mit in ihre Welt und berichtet von all den Erfahrungen, die sie zu der starken Frau gemacht haben, die sie heute ist. Warmherzig, weise und unverblümt erzählt sie von ihrer Kindheit an der Chicagoer South Side, von den Jahren als Anwältin und leitende Angestellte, von der nicht immer einfachen Zeit als berufstätige Mutter sowie von ihrem Leben an Baracks Seite und dem Leben ihrer Familie im Weißen Haus. Gnadenlos ehrlich und voller Esprit schreibt sie sowohl über große Erfolge als auch über bittere Enttäuschungen, den privaten wie den öffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist mehr als eine Autobiografie. Es enthält die ungewöhnlich intimen Erinnerungen einer Frau mit Herz und Substanz, deren Geschichte uns zeigt, wie wichtig es ist, seiner eigenen Stimme zu folgen.
