This session will give an introduction to the meaning of Sports Law and the reason for the increasing significance of law in the world of sport. It will look in-depth at one example, by examining the potential legal consequences of a football club sacking a manager before the end of their contract because their team has not won enough matches or trophies – a common occurrence in the football Premier League.
