Lex sportiva as transnational law

4 April 2011

Ken Foster, Research Fellow in Sports Law at the Centre gave a guest seminar on Monday 4 April from 3.30 - 5pm in Room 3.13, Little Titchfield Street .The session was entitled 'Lex sportiva as transnational law'.

Following Ken Foster's seminar in April, four students (one PhD student, three from the LLM Entertainment Law programme) were invited along to the LawAccord Conference, itself part of the broader SportAccord programme.

We were indebted to Ken Foster and Stephen Townley for organising this for the students. This was an extremely high level event with contributions from the Director of WADA and the Secretary of the Court of Arbitration for Sport and the students were delighted to have been offered such an opportunity.
