New LawInSport Editorial Board launched to help develop global sports law

We are delighted to announce LawInSport's new look Editorial Board. The new Editorial Board structure is bold and ambitious; it is made-up of many of the World’s leading sports lawyers, policy experts and rising stars of the sector.

By way of background, the LawInSport Editorial Board has been fundamental to the success of LawInSport as a publication, educator and community. The time, effort, feedback, support and contributions from our previous and current Editorial Board members and Advisory Board members has helped shaped how we create and share legal information. Our Editorial Board will continue and build on this great work.

To stay true to our values the Editorial Board is inclusive and diverse to reflect the global legal and sports sectors. This inevitably meant we have a large board, which will ensure we can address the most important issues in each region (see below) and give more opportunities for our members and readers to be engage and be involved in the development of sports law in their region and internationally.

The Board is split into 8 regions:

  • Africa
  • Asia
  • Central, South America & Caribbean
  • Europe
  • Middle East
  • North America
  • Oceania
  • UK

Whilst we have no plans to expand the UK, Europe and North America boards we will be organically growing our Africa, Asia, Middle East and Oceania boards over coming years.

We would like to welcome and thank each of our new members for being part of this exciting initiative, which we think will help to develop global sports law, and for buying into our vision and values.

The new Editorial Board structure forms part of the wider initiatives LawInSport have undertaken to increase the opportunities for those interested in, and working in, sport and the legal profession to contribute and benefit from the development of global sports law. These initiatives include the launch of our new Advisory Board and the LawInSport Academy Mentoring Scheme 2018, in which 46 mentees from 13 counties are being mentored by 26 of the world’s leading sports lawyers. You can read about the Advisory Board here and Mentoring Scheme here.
