Asian athlete's unprecedented rise and acclaim in the global sporting arena accompanied with emotions and fan-based of some 4 billion spectators has taken the sporting world by surprise. This historic decade marks a growing need for mature discourse on sports jurisprudence and harmonised governance of national and international sports federations across continents. Asian passion for sports has played a pivotal role in removing the Eurocentric lens that sports was historically often viewed through.

The emergence of 21st century socio-medico awareness in the world of sports has also brought about novel legal concepts on equality and rights under the wider umbrella of sporting rights and sport democracy, placing the notion of hat-tricks and heartbreaks into focus. The law vs. spirit of sports in the past few years has also seen Asian countries actively pushing towards establishing a more comprehensive regulatory and wholesome sports law framework, in line with international standards, dealing with a host of issues including match fixing and doping to name a few.

The theme this year will not only explore key advancements and contemporary issues in international sports law ranging from the Sandpapergate scandal, to genetic and biological variations in track and field, as well as competing rights on freedom of speech and public interest highlighted through the Australian rugby crisis, but also discuss Asia’s meteoric rise in the world of sports.

Admission to all attendees is FREE. Networking cocktail reception and sports carnival after conference.
