Course Description: This is a Comparative Law course examining the application of law in sport in Australia, Canada, Europe, and the USA. In the second half of the twentieth century sport was transformed into a global business, part of a giant global sport, media and cultural industry. Sport is governed by a complex of national and international federations affiliated to a defacto global sports government, the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Nineteenth century ideals of athleticism have been pushed into the background as professional sport has become the norm. Sport is now an inseparable part of place competition in the global economy. This course examines the development of global sport and the increasing intercession of the law in its historical context. Using case studies, the course touches on a number of different areas of the law so as to allow participants an understanding of the developing role of law in the world of sport.
