Professor Kenneth Shropshire is a pioneer in the development of the sports law sector. He has had a distinguished career in sport, business and law over the last 40 years as a professor, business consultant, author, and lawyer.

He has experience in a wide range of sports related issues such as race and discrimination issues, leading a global sporting event, stadium and arena construction and financing, the relocation of franchises, the transition of athletes from the playing field into business to focusing on diversity in sports.

He is the author of one of the foundational books focused on race and sports and another book on sports agents. He is also the co-author of one of the leading books on sport business used by business schools as well as one of the leading undergraduate sports law texts.
