About the Seminar

Panjab University Regional Centre (PURC) is organising a one-day Seminar on Changing Dimensions of Sports Law: Some Contemporary Issues on 7th February 2020.

The term ‘Sports Law’ is non-existential in the expressions of legal terminology. The area is looked in through the lens of various applicable laws like, Civil, Criminal and Commercial. The increase of commercialization of Sports, has thus invoked the questions of Competition Laws, Intellectual Property Laws, Contract Law etc. Hence, the objective of the present seminar is thus, to highlight, discuss, review critical areas of sports law, nationally as well internationally.
