Hot Topics In Sports Law, 2014

Published: Wednesday 8th October 2014

With AFL and the NRL finals over for another year, and the dust settled on the spectacle and entertainment provided by these events, an opportunity arises to reflect on other highlights of 2014 in the equally dynamic world of law and sport. This presentation provides an overview of significant Sports Law issues in 2014 in Australia and seeks to demonstrate that, despite not having as great an entertainment value as grand finals, the topics are of equal significance and importance to understanding how sport, the law and society interact, providing opportunities for academic scholarship and options for rewarding professional practice careers in Sports Law.
