Key sports law cases and developments of 2019 - UK & Ireland
Published 16 December 2019 By: Chris Bond
As we come to the end of another hectic year, we wanted to take the opportunity to identify and provide some insights into what we think have been the key sports law issues of 2019.
We therefore invited each member of our Editorial Board to write a short summary of their highlights. Below are the responses from our UK & Ireland members. We hope this proves useful not only in identifying specific cases and issues, but also in detecting broader themes and giving a feel for the zeitgeist when read in conjunction with the contributions from other jurisdictions.
We would like to thank each member of our Editorial Board for taking the time out of their busy schedules to share their views with us, and also more broadly for their significant input into LawInSport over the course of the year. Thank you.
