The International Sport Law course will provide students with an in-depth understanding of the increasingly complex, unique and important relationship between sport and the law.

Instructor: Kevin Carpenter (please contact the instructor if you need an up-to-date syllabus)
Prerequisite: None. This course is designed for Graduate level students. Undergraduate students are not eligible to enroll.

Why take this course?

  • The course will cover the full range of issues which can arise in the field and be considered within a broad definition of “sports law” from commercial issues and governance, to the resolution of disputes and equality in sport.
  • Each topic covered will be comparative in nature between North America, Europe and the rest of the world.
  • Although there will be detailed explanation of the analysis of the theory and jurisprudence for each topic, given the author’s background primarily as a practitioner, there will be many real-life examples, practical tips and engaging exercises to complete.
