Understand The Rules Of The Game 2019 – LawInSport Annual Conference

September 12September 13


The 5th LawInSport’s Annual Conference ‘Understand The Rules Of The Game 2019’ will be hosted at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, Green Park (Mayfair), London on 12th & 13th September 2019.

This two day conference will build on the success of the previous annual conferences at which over 300 leading sports lawyers, sports executives, academics, students and athletes networked and discussed the key issues and developments in international sports law.

You will be able to follow updates about the conference by using #LISconf19.


Interactive Panel Discussions

The conference provides attendees with two full days of interactive panel discussions, with world leading experts discussing the contemporary legal issues impacting global sport.

Professional Development & Knowledge Sharing

Not only will attendees partake in cutting edge panel discussions, they will also receive a complimentary copy of the “Understand The Rules Of The Game” conference magazine. Attendees will therefore have access to detailed reference materials that will help them when faced with legal issues in their work or studies.


The LawInSport Annual conference is well known for its unparalleled networking opportunities, and this will be a theme that continues at this year’s conference. With over 6 hours of networking during the two days and two evenings of networking drinks, attendees will have dedicated time to network and meet with colleagues in the sector in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Private Work Space

We understand that with all the best intentions to attend every session over the two days there will be times when attendees may need to check into work or take calls…the work of lawyers and executives never stops!

Therefore to give attendees the best opportunity to be present and make the most of the conference we have allocated a private room to work in and take calls through-out the conference should you need to. Thus you will never have to be far from the action and be able to take advantage of all the networking opportunities and participate in the conference as much as possible.
