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.
