This May sees the publication of the first comprehensive guide to legal issues in football in the world as well as a "Football Law" themed seminar in central London.

The new book, Football and the Law (Bloomsbury Professional, 2018) features 29 chapters of discussion and analysis of just about every legal issue and dispute arising in football.

It covers everything from the regulatory scheme and rules of international and domestic football, the structure of the playing contract and football transfers, disciplinary issues, the regulation of football intermediaries, and the role of European law to commercial issues such as image rights, sponsorship and broadcasting – as well as many other important topics.
