The Diploma in Sports Law will be Kicking off Soon!
The Diploma Centre is delighted to offer the Diploma in Sports Law, which will commence Wednesday 21 October 2020. 
This diploma provides participants with an insight into the dynamic area of sports law, both domestically and internationally. Modules will address the practical issues that practitioners from the smallest to the largest firms are called to advise on. The course begins with a review of regulation and governance of the sport sector and identifies and discusses the sporting governing bodies. It outlines how to set up a club and reviews the rules which need to be followed. The course also looks at club membership and the protection of both players and management. The issue of concussion and second impact syndrome has become very topical and we ask the question: how do clubs protect themselves and their players and members? Additionally, the area of child protection, which is key to ensuring that young people are safeguarded in their participation in sport, is examined. 
The course also provides a detailed examination of the commercialisation of sport, including sponsorship agreements, broadcasting, ticketing, and merchandising. Key issues such as corruption in sport, violence, gambling, and technology in sport will be considered; followed by an in-depth look at the WADA anti-doping code. 
Finally, the course looks at disciplinary procedures, both internal and external, to include the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution in sport. What disciplinary codes are in place and what codes should be in place? Furthermore what policies and procedures are in place to ensure these codes are adhered to and enforced?
