Sports law is an extensive legal field that often includes issues regarding labor/employment, contracts, defamation, antitrust, torts and much more. Laws and regulations in this area relate to everything from franchising and intellectual property to sports equipment and medical care. Attorneys specializing in sports law can represent coaches, agents, athletes, sports leagues, and other sports-associated individuals and entities.
Searching for the latest developments in sports law can be a bit overwhelming, so we've compiled a list of the top relevant feeds to follow on Twitter. This list is based on Twitter data culled according to content, follower/following ratios, frequency of tweets, blog popularity, the opinions of other sports law experts and influencers, as well as our own subjective judgment.
Note that some influential voices are not included, either because they don't have active Twitter accounts or because they only tweet about sports law sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of sports law news and insights.
