helmet, the manufacturer of the helmet could be held liable. Wong, G. M. (2010). Essentials of Sports Law, 4th Edition : Fourth Edition (Vol. 4th ed). Santa Barbara, Calif: Praeger. Actual authority includes express authority and implied authority. Express authority occurs when the principal gives an agent the power to complete a specific act on behalf of the principal. There is a contractual agreement in place between the agent and principal that grants the agent permission to act on behalf of the principal. Implied authority, also called usual authority, is the assumption the agent has that an action is reasonably necessary to perform according to express authority. If the action is performed in accordance with carrying out the express permission given by the principal, this is considered implied authority. Apparent authority, or ostensible authority, refers to a situation where a third party would operate under the assumption that the agent was acting on the direction of the principal. If the principal was not present during the meeting of the agent with the third party, the principal would not be held to maintain the agreement if this agreement goes against his wishes. On the other hand, if the principal were in attendance of the meeting with the agent and the third party and did not speak out against the proceedings, the principal is bound to uphold the agreement regardless of express authority given to the agent or not.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
