Professional Master in Sports Law

ACCREDITATION

This program was created in response to the needs of the job market, where arbitration has become an increasingly popular means of settling disputes. Of note, students who might not have a Bachelor’s in Law can be admitted to this program, as well as regular Law graduates. Students coming from fields such as Contracting and Engineering are therefore especially encouraged to apply.
There are many potential types of legal infringement committed under the banner of professional sports today, whether in marketing and advertising, broadcasting, reputational management, or celebrity privacy. Sports law seeks to create a framework related to sports that can be regulated and relied upon by national and international sporting bodies and organizations. Governmental bodies concerned with sports, such as the Ministry of Youth and Sports and its affiliated bodies, require specialists in the rules that govern them; this program exists to create such specialists.
