We are excited to announce that the 3rd edition of LawInSport’s Annual Conference ‘Understand The Rules Of The Game’ will be hosted at the Royal Institution, Green Park, Central London on 7th & 8th September 2017.

This two day conference will build on the success of the previous annual conferences at which over 250 leading sports lawyers, sports executives, academics, students and athletes networked and discussed the key issues and developments in international sports law.
