The Sports Law Academy

A unique opportunity to gain a practical insight into the side of sport that you don’t see on the pitch.

Welcome to the Mishcon Sports Law Academy; an academic distance learning programme designed for junior lawyers, students and non-legal professionals looking to gain a unique practical insight into contemporary sports law issues.

Through the combination of online lectures, interactive seminars and in-person discussions, all of which are accessible remotely, participants will learn how to navigate the sports law landscape from market-leading experts as well as special guest lecturers. The Mishcon Sports Law Academy is free to access.

At Mishcon we are committed to using and sharing knowledge to improve industry standards, promote diversity and nurture young talent, and since its inception in 2015, more than 150 students have graduated from the Sports Law Academy.

This year, we are expanding the programme to welcome non-legal professionals, junior in-house lawyers, trainees and paralegals as well as students, with an interest in developing their understanding of the legal issues in sport.
