Webinar - Paradigm shift: Sports law in the age of business and human rights

Join LawInSport on Wednesday, 2nd May, for a webinar roundtable on developments in the application of international human rights law within sport. Recent human rights commitments by sports governing bodies are the latest progression of the 2011 United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), the standard which also guided the development of the 2017 Universal Declaration of Player Rights. These developments mark a paradigm shift with far-reaching implications for sports governing bodies, athletes, commercial partners, governments and lawyers. 

The webinar will feature an interactive discussion on the implementation of this emerging field of law and practice, building on two recent LawinSport articles: "A guide to the World Players Association’s Universal Declaration of Player Rights" by Matthew Kaiser andSport’s human rights requirements: an opportunity and challenge for sports lawyers as well as sports governing bodies by Brendan Schwab.
