Call for Papers | Workshop: “The Jurisprudence of Sports” at the IVR Congress in Lucerne, Switzerland, 7-13 July 2019. Call ends 31 January 2019
There is recognition that law and sports (as games) bear strong similarities. Both can be understood as systems of rules, with a judge/referee who has the power to issue punishments/penalties. And the rules of cricket and rugby are known as ‘laws’ in English. This workshop aims to discuss jurisprudential issues in sports, falling under the broad themes of justice and fairness (equity/Billigkeit).
