By its very nature, Sports Law, as a distinct field of law, spans across various different jurisprudences; for example, law of contracts and negotiation, media law, public competition, the laws on drug, narcotics and artificial stimulants, etc. Additionally, sports law is yet to be taught as a full-fledged subject in law schools in India. This situation makes it very difficult to understand the finer nuances of this law. Furthermore, there is no Central or State Legislation that regulates sports per se in India. The governance of sports in India is interspersed among many institutions at the international, national, regional and local levels. Thus, there is an extreme dearth of clarity among law professionals, students, sportsmen and even sports regulators regarding the actual facets, scope, application and interpretation of this law. Given India’s recent rise as a force to be reckoned with in the sphere of sports, it becomes even more imperative to overcome this shortcoming and remove the deficit in knowledge and comprehension of Sports Law.
The course illustrates the specific nature of sports and its pertinent jurisprudence. It extensively addresses and deals with a variety of facets ranging from criminal offences like fraud and cheating to civil liability arising from contractual obligations which form an integral part of the subject matter of Sports Law. The topics and chapters are structured not only to illustrate the theoretical aspect of the subject but enable the learners to understand the practical application of the principles by analyzing the plethora of sports jurisprudence, explaining the interplay between the various laws related to it, identifying the distribution of powers among sports regulatory bodies – both national and international, and providing a comprehensive view of their dispute resolution mechanism. The course is ideal for legal or sports professionals and those who are interested in representing the interests of athletes and players.
