Now in its third season, the Mishcon Sports Law Academy has gone from strength to strength. Through a series of evening seminars, students learn from lawyers in the Mishcon Sports Group about sporting disputes, employment and immigration, commercial negotiations, corporate transactions and sports integrity issues. The students are encouraged to engage with the legal, commercial and practical approaches to the various disciplines through real-life case studies and group discussion.
Each year the students are invited to prepare a briefing on a legal issue in sport. The 2015/16 cohort submitted articles on a wide range of topics. To recognise their efforts we have pulled together a selection of the best briefings which we hope will be of interest to you.
