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.
You will be able to follow updates about the conference by using #LISConf17.
The conference provides attendees with two full days of interactive panel discussions, with world leading experts discussing the contemporary legal issues impacting global sport.
Not only will attendees partake in cutting edge panel discussions, they will also receive a complimentary copy of the “Understand The Rules Of The Game” conference magazine, which includes over 100 pages of peer-reviewed sports law materials. Attendees will therefore have access to detailed reference materials that will help them when faced with legal issues in their work or studies.
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.
