Law students who dream of one day representing the likes of Tiger Woods or John Terry can now take a new post-graduate certificate in sports law, which is being launched by Coventry University’s Centre for the International Business of Sport.
The one-year programme, which will cost £3,120 and is due to kick-off in October 2010, is open to non-law students as well as those who have done a Legal Practice Course (LPC).
But Dr Anna Semens, who is leading the new programme’s development team, said the course is also aimed at non-legally qualified candidates who are already working in the sports industry.
She said: “We developed this course because a lot of people in the industry had identified a need for people to learn more about the growing complexity of sport and its relationship with the law.”
To mark the launch of the new programme, the university will be hosting an evening at Clintons Solicitors next Monday (17 May), with an appearance of Queens Park Rangers Manager Neil Warnock.
In addition, sports lawyer Mel Stein, a consultant at Clintons Law and former agent of footballer Paul Gascoigne, will be on hand to tell people more about the new programme.
The course is set to be delivered at Coventry University’s new London City centre campus.
