Sport is both an industry of the modern age and a traditional activity that reaches to the core of the social fabric. Law and sport intersect in many and varied ways, some of which challenge established notions of thinking about law. Sport, Commerce and the Law is the flagship subject of the sports law program, surveying many areas of legal controversy in sport, with particular emphasis on the link between the commercialisation of sport and the emergence of sports law. This subject is the best place to start for students embarking on a program of sports law studies and, for the student with wider interests, this is the ideal subject through which to sample sports law. The lecturer is an established figure in the field and one of a small number of people in the world with the breadth of knowledge necessary to teach such a subject.
This subject will consider selected aspects of the relationship between the law and commercial and professional sporting activities. Particular attention will be given to legal responses to the commercialisation of sport and how those responses influence sport.
Principal topics will include:
A student who has successfully completed this subject should:
