The University of Queensland
TC Beirne School of Law is partnering with thew Centre for India Australia Studies (CIAS) and Jindal Global Law School (JGLS) to host a combined course on “Sports Law and Governance” during the mid- semester break September 23nd-30th 2017 in India at JGLS. An industry and cultural immersion will occur in Inida outside of class time.
The course will be an intensive programme for Indian and Australian law students and will be taught by academics, lawyers and guest presenters from UQ and JGLS. During the first year (September 2017), the course will be hosted by JGLS in Sonipat, India and the following year (July 2018) the course will be hosted by UQ. The proposed programme will provide students from UQ the opportunity to travel to India for this course which will be hosted at JGLS. UQ students will have the opportunity to interact with law students and faculty from Indian universities during the course. Additional activities and site visits relevant to the field of sport will also be arranged for a more practical perspective on the subject.
Several part scholarships will be offered to assist with travel expenses for the course, and these will be allocated on a competitive basis. Students’ travel for the course will be self funded.
Sport is a growing sector globally, and there are many opportunities for employment within the industry of sport both in Inida and Australia. Given the commercial, commoditized and global nature of sport, the need for effective governmance and understanding of legal aspects of sport is essential for a range of stakeholders including legal practitioners, sports administrators, athletes, sponsors and government.
