How to Play Football’s Legal Game

From 29 June – 3 July 2015, the ASSER International Sports Law Centre is organising the third Summer Programme on International Sports Law. 

This year's programme will engage, challenge, and equip you with the necessary knowledge and understanding of European and international football law. It aims to ensure that you will be capable of advising players when they need to transfer from one country to another, to represent a club when it faces an UEFA investigation on the basis of its Financial Fair Play Regulations, or to negotiate TV rights in full cognition of the constraints imposed by EU law in this domain. 

The Summer Programme is designed for qualified attorneys, policy-makers, and representatives of clubs or federations but also advanced students (e.g. LL.M., Ph.D.) who wish to acquire in-depth knowledge on the regulation of football in Europe and beyond. The lectures cover a wide range of topics dealing with the regulation of football. It also includes a number of workshops deemed to facilitate through practical exercises the assimilation of the skills provided in the lectures. 

Topics that will be covered during the Summer Programme include among others:

  • Football Governance;
  • Football Justice;
  • Football Players’ Transfers;
  • Football’s Commercial Rules;
  • Football and EU Competition Law.
