Mishcon Sports Law Academy 2016/17
At Mishcon, we believe in nurturing and developing talent from the earliest possible stage.
That is why we have decided to offer students a unique opportunity to gain a practical insight into the side of sport that you don’t see on the pitch through the Mishcon Sports Law Academy.
Sports Law issues are continually attracting headlines:
- ‘Governing body in corruption scandal’
- ‘Rider faces 2-year doping ban’
- ‘Manager sacked by Club’
- ‘Racing team raises funds through crowd-funding’
- ‘Club signs sponsorship deal with sports brand’
It is issues like these that our lawyers deal with on a daily basis. At Mishcon we work with players, clubs, agents and governing bodies across a whole host of sports and would like to share some of this knowledge with a group of budding young lawyers who have a passion for sports law.
Over the course of this academic year we will be running six evening seminars (Mondays from 18:15-19:45) at our London offices. Each 90 minute session will focus on a particular topic of sports law and will be coordinated by Mishcon lawyers who specialise in that area of law. They will provide a presentation and introduction to the topic before distributing a case study and asking for your input, to allow you to gain practical experience in dealing with a variety of sports law issues.
The Sports Law Academy certificate
Attendance at the Sports Law Academy will be taken into account for Mishcon’s vacation scheme applications. Students who have a good attendance record and contributions to the seminars will be rewarded with a Sports Law Academy certificate.
In addition, we will be offering a week of work experience in the Mishcon Sports Law team to the winner of the Sports Law Academy article competition. Students will have the opportunity to submit a briefing note on a legal issue in sport at any point during the course of the program.
