Module 5: The Fight for Gender Equality - Football on Trial (in partnership with Women in Football)

Posted on 21 June 2022

During our final session, we put football on trial for failing to promote the development of women’s football and the full participation of women at all levels of football governance in breach of the FIFA Statutes.

The charges were brought, and football was defended, by an all-women team of legal experts including Marlena Valles (Blackstone Chambers), Jane Mulcahy QC (Blackstone Chambers), Kate Gallafent QC (Blackstone Chambers), Carola Binney (4 New Square) and expert witnesses including Jacqui Oatley MBE and Moya Dodd (Partner - Gilbert + Tobin). Dame Heather Rabbatts DBE was our presiding judge.

The jury was comprised of 12 selected participants of the 2021/22 Sports Law Academy cohort who were tasked with determining the outcome of the criminal trial.
