The past decade has witnessed no shortage of controversy over the governance of sport. Good governance and legal structure are seen by many astute observers as key elements in sporting success. From grassroots to the highest echelons, the governance of sport is a fascinating field for study. The law has struggled to meet the needs of community groups looking for effective but simple structures and governance models necessary to propel sports participation and social connection, while successful professional sports leagues have searched for models that respond to their peculiar combination of sporting competition and economic cooperation.
This subject explores the legal aspects of these issues as well as controversies and efforts at the international level concerning corruption and its suppression. The lecturers bring an unrivalled combination of knowledge and experience in this area, encompassing leadership of major sports organisations, the business models of leagues and sports law.
This subject will consider aspects of the law relating to sports entities in Australia and selected international bodies. Attention will be paid to the diverse legal needs of key stakeholders in sport.
Principal topics will include:
