The Sports Law Group has for many years been engaged, amongst other matters, in well-known independent reviews into various domestic national governing bodies; represented athletes, coaches and NGBs in equalities and discrimination and selection disputes; and advised on sports policy issues.

With that specialism and expertise in mind, the Inspire Sports Law initiative is designed to support athletes transitioning away from high-performance sport and those from less fortunate and well-represented socio-economic backgrounds to develop a career in the law.

 The initiative aims to address some of the issues identified as sport's “duty of care” and as part of widening access to the Bar.

 The Inspire Sports Law initiative includes opportunities for:

  • Work experience in Littleton chambers, attending hearings with barristers and considering cases of interest.
  • Mentoring in terms of university studies, law or bar school topic choices, scholarship applications and interviews at firms or chambers.
  • Networking at Sports Law Group annual events.
  • Ongoing education by way of case updates and comments via the Sports Law Group's mailing-list.
