Sports Dispute Resolution
Recent times have witnessed a number of high-profile instances of the use of courts and arbitral tribunals to resolve sporting disputes.
It is little wonder that a popular subject in the sports law program is Sports Dispute Resolution which will be offered from 27 April to 3 May 2016 (excluding the weekend). Melbourne Law School will welcome the return of one of Canada’s leading scholars, Professor Richard L McLaren OC, to teach the subject jointly with Paul Hayes of the Victorian Bar. Professor McLaren has recently been made an Officer of the Order of Canada in recognition of “his contributions to sports law and arbitration, alternative dispute resolution and legal education as an internationally renowned lawyer and professor.” Melbourne Law School congratulates Professor McLaren on this most significant award.
