Programa

Introduction to Sports Law
Principles of Sports Law offers the student the opportunity to look at the law and its history with sport. Students will have a sound understanding of the main academic concepts of sport and the law, governing bodies and the laws that affect sports around the world. There will be the opportunity to hear from esteemed industry experts as well as lectures covering the most pertinent legal cases and its application.
Sport, Law & Society
Firstly we will look at Sport, law and society. This section considers much of the underlying issues concerned with the role of law in regulating sport. We will look a both a historical and contemporary view of this role. Competing theoretical explanations of the law’s increasing regulatory intervention in sport will be evaluated, on a national, European and international basis. A number of established issues in sports will be examined, such as excessive violence, drugs use and discrimination and the role of the normative regulatory framework, including the law. The changing nature of contemporary sport with the move to increased commercialisation and professionalisation will be evaluated in terms of how this had led to the twin commodification and juridification of modern sport.
This examination will highlight the supra and international nature of the development of sports law – as sports has to be understood in increasingly global terms, legal regulation of sport transcends national barriers in many ways.
The Individual, Sport & the Law
This module will examine the civil and criminal law as it relates to the liability of individual athletes. The civil law will be examined in the context of the need to compensate individual participants for loss suffered as a consequence of injuries suffered in the course of participating in sport.
The appropriateness of the law as a means of deterring violent behavior as well as compensating participants will also be examined. As such, there will be consideration of alternative means of compensating, such as no fault compensation schemes and relevance of insurance. This module will also examine the mechanisms to ensure the safety of the followers of sport and the liability of participants, clubs and others to them.
Governance in Sport

The Regulation & Settlement of Disputes in Sport
This module considers the regulation of disputes in sport. In particular, it considers traditions of self-regulation by governing bodies in sport, the nature of state regulation and international regulation. The module examines the processes and procedures adopted by domestic as well as international regulatory and adjudicatory bodies in dealing with disputes arising from the business relationships occurring in sport as well as issues of discipline at international level. This module explores the relationship between domestic and international tribunals as regards to the granting and efficacy of remedies.
In particular, the module considers the process of judicial review in national courts and appeal and review in international sports disputes. The module will also examine alternative disputing mechanisms to processes of adjudication.
Legal Aspects of Sports Business
This module area will provide you with a critical understanding of the relationship between sports businesses and the law in Britain, Europe and the rest of the world. Sport has become a lucrative form of business enterprise and the law provides the means through which sports businesses are conducted, from the contractual relationships between the parties to the business organisation which manage, fund and administer sports clubs. The module will analyse the law and its effect on sports business.
