Game on! UQ law students tackle corruption in sport

7 Aug 2017

Match-fixing, doping, organised crime and player contracts are the kind of curve balls that will be pitched in a new course offered by The University of Queensland’s TC Beirne School of Law.

Dr Kelly says the global sports industry is a $US1.5 trillion business

The intensive Sports Law and Governance elective, which includes study at the Jindal Law School in Delhi, India, will be run by UQ’s Dr Sarah-Jane Kelly and Jindal Law School’s Assistant Professor Shaun Star.

Former Australian test cricketer, Cricket Australia board member and UQ alumnus Michael Kasprowicz will also participate in the week-long schedule of classes and visits to the Indian Supreme Court, the Australian High Commission, sports law firms, sports sponsors and sports organisations.
