**Private - between 8.30-10:15am on Day 2 we are hosting a private In-House Counsel Forum exclusively for lawyers working within sports organisation and businesses.
The conference provides attendees with two full days of interactive panel discussions, with world leading experts discussing the contemporary legal issues impacting global sport.
The LawInSport Annual conference is well known for its unparalleled networking opportunities, and this will be a theme that continues at this year’s conference. With over 6 hours of networking during the two days and two evenings of networking drinks, attendees will have dedicated time to network and meet with colleagues in the sector in a friendly and welcoming environment.
There is a limited number of places, therefore tickets are being sold on a first come first served basis.
|Ticket Type|| Standard
Plus/Academic/Corporate/ Member Price (£)
|Full-Time - Students||
Please register for a Standard or Plus account and login when you are purchasing your ticket to ensure you can watch the video recordings and that you receive the correct ticket.
** To be eligible for a student ticket you must be a full-time student before and at the time of the conference. If you purchase a student ticket when you are not a Full-Time Student (i.e. a working student) you will be prevented from entering the conference until the balance is paid and your membership may be revoked. To purchase a student ticket please email events@lawinsport with a copy of your student card and certificate/letter of attendance to receive the discount code.
Full-Time Current Athlete & Esports Players/Managers/Coaches = FREE.
Each attendee only needs to register once for the Conference and they will receive registration details for each session in advance of the event. Discounts are applied automatically during the registration and checkout. Please note that all tickets are non-refundable.
In the unlikely event of the British Government introducing new restrictions that require the conference to be postponed, tickets will be carried forward to the date of the rescheduled conference.
As with all LawInSport's activities we set the price to be as inclusive as possible. A full price ticket equates to less than 1 hour of billable time for the majority of lawyers around the world. For students it is less than the price of a couple of cups of coffee for each session, and is less than 5% of the cost of many online courses. Therefore we hope you will understand why we do not offer any additional discounts.
10 hours self-certified CPD
