If a drunken brawl erupts during a baseball game, can the stadium be held responsible for injuries sustained by innocent bystanders? Can a student who becomes paralyzed during a school-organized football game hold the school liable for providing a defective helmet? Join attorneys Carla Varriale and Gil Fried for answers to these and other interesting questions relating to the duty of care owed by schools, sports teams, and facilities to participants and spectators of sporting events. Ms. Varriale and Mr. Fried talk about the various occurrences where this duty is owed: (1) supervising children’s activities;(2) keeping facilities safe, provide adequate warnings, and prevent foreseeable harm; and (3) hiring qualified personnel, officials, and referees. They also explore the methods by which sports facility owners and operators can shift the risk of liability to third parties through contractual indemnification agreements, insurance agreements, and waivers. Their discussion is interspersed with entertaining stories and rich illustrations that make this program an enjoyable introductory course on the common claims that arise in sports law.

Perhaps I was more drawn to this program because this is the area of law in which I practice, but I learned so much. This felt more like a conversation than a lecture, which is refreshing.
