LLB245 Sports Law

Sports Law covers the application of a wide range of legal principles to a sporting context. You will have studied some of the principles at a general level in core units, allowing you to consolidate your knowledge, while other areas of the unit will be new. Sport-specific legal principles (for example, regarding doping) will also be covered. Sport is an area that is becoming increasingly business-orientated and litigious. If you plan to work as a manager, administrator or lawyer in the area of sports you will, in the course of your day-to-day activities, encounter a wide variety of situations that could have potential legal consequences.  The unit will draw upon your knowledge of legal systems and torts law and your research skills.
