I'm excited to partner up for the second edition of the Diploma in Sports Law

The diploma will focus on practical issues as well as some pertinent case law. Key issues around contract law and its applicability to sports professionals and their representatives will be explored.
The FIFA regulations around the transfer of players, third party ownership and other issues pertinent to staying within the legal requirements are also discussed.
