LAWS77-521: Global Sports Law and Governance

Description

Global Sports Law and Governance is an elective subject in postgraduate programs offered by the Faculty of Law. Global Sports Law and Governance takes students on a journey across jurisdictions to see how a number of current sports law and governance issues transcend international borders. The subject commences with an introductory overview of the law in sport. Students from non-law backgrounds will benefit from this introductory discussion. Three key themes will be identified - Key Theme 1: Regulation and Governance, Key Theme 2: Participant Health and Welfare, and Key Theme 3: Integrity in Sport. Students will then select a current topic under one or more of these themes as the area of focus for their research assignment.
