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.
