onside law: conference line-up announced

Onside law is pleased to announce the annual international sports law conference: “A Year in Sports Law”.

The conference will consider and discuss the key issues in sport and in particular sports law from the last 12 months. Each major sport will be reviewed by a panel of experts and decision makers from that sport following a presentation on the key developments from the preceding 12 months. In particular the panel of experts will draw upon the lessons learnt by certain sports to address the issues faced by others.

2010 marks the beginning of what some have called a “Golden Decade” for British Sport. In addition to the 2012 Olympics, Britain will host the 2015 Rugby World Cup, the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the 2014 Ryder Cup and perhaps even the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Sport and the business of sport will take an ever more prominent place in national affairs and this conference will consider all the key legal issues which affect sport and which will form such an important part of the planning and implementation of the Golden Decade.

This Course merits 5.5 hours under the UK Solicitors Regulation Authority self-accreditation scheme.

Tuesday 2nd February 2010 at the Institute of Directors, London. For detailed information and to book your place at this prestigious event please click here or email:

£495 + VAT. The fee includes course documentation, mid-session refreshments and lunch.
