Description

Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research 

Following the outstanding success of British sport in 2012, join our panel of experts as they discuss the future for sport in Britain and beyond.

Birmingham Law School’s Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research (CEPLER) presents an evening of discussion and Q&A around the question of the future of sport and the law. 

As the London2012 legacy plan aims to “Inspire a Generation”, outstanding University of Birmingham alumni will be joined by our leading academics to look at the impact of governance and regulation on Europe’s sporting environment. Can anti-doping and equality regulation  positively affect participation? Does the continued rise, and communicative freedom, of social media present a danger to sport’s reputation? 

During the 150th Anniversary of the Football Association, we are delighted to welcome their Head of Governance and Regulation, UoB alumnus Darren Bailey. He will be joined by fellow Law alumnus Julz Adeniran,  Great Britain and England 110m Hurdler, and Marketing graduate Michelle Leavesley, head of Citidesk Sport Communications. The panel will be completed by Dr Leon McRae, of Birmingham Law School, and Dr Jonathan Grix of Sport and Exercise Sciences. The event will be chaired by James Lee, Director of Careers for CEPLER.
