In brief: Sport and Law group links with Marathon

The British Association for Sport and Law is holding its annual conference – this year called “The Problems of Sport Outside the Stadia” – in conjunction with the London Marathon, for the first time. The organisers claimed they were the first to tackle the legal issues surrounding sporting events which take place on public highways and waterways. Now in its fourth year, the association has grown to 300 members. They include solicitors, barristers and sports and business professionals.
