Course summary

Sport is regulated by a complex pattern of law and regulation. Sport executives not only need to conform to the regulations established by the authorities, but they must also use their understanding of the legal framework to ensure compliance with the law of the land, and protect the business from risk. This degree links the commercial and legal aspects of the sport business, understanding the ramifications of an industry which is increasingly affected by legal regulations, and bringing sport in line with other sectors. Modules will focus on sport business, domestic and EU sport law, the role of governing bodies in sport and international sport business governance. You will also explore the legal challenges regarding the use of social media within the industry, recent case studies regarding drug abuse and racism in sport and the legal issues surrounding safety in sport stadiums and of spectators. The broad spectrum of subjects covered, including player contracts at home and abroad, loan agreements, transfer negotiations, disciplinary and regulatory problems, intellectual property rights, product endorsement and sponsorship deals, will help you apply theory to live projects to develop your employability skills and provide you with a balanced undergraduate degree.
