Sports Law News Recap – April - June 2018

Published 06 July 2018 | Authored by: Sean Cottrell

Every week at LawInSport we make time to read and discuss a broad range of sources (including press releases, articles, media outlets and social media) to try to stay on top of what we consider to be “live” sports law issues. We then discuss each topic to decide if it is worthy of further analysis or something we should continue to monitor.

Having discussed this process with several sports law academics and practitioners over the last few months, it has been suggested that it would be helpful for the LawInSport community to have access to this information. Therefore, on a weekly basis we will now publish a list of the news, articles, interviews, etc. that we have considered in the hope that it is of interest and use to the LawInSport community. For the first edition, we will include issues from April, May and June.

We welcome any feedback you may have on the format or content of these updates. Also, if we have missed anything please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. continue reading register here for free
