About the Conference
The International Virtual Conference on ‘Sports and Law’ seeks to bring experts from all across the globe in the field of Sports and Law to one platform for a fruitful legal academic discourse on analyzing the need for lucid legal provisions pertaining to sports in India.
The conference aims to promote discussions that reflect a need to look at sports not as a frivolous means to enjoy oneself, but as the golden ticket for the Indian economy and an industry that promises great dividends for players and administrators alike. Also, there is a need to utilize the youth in uplifting sports in the country and the enthusiasm of the masses for it can be channelized in an optimum manner to involve them in running sports in the country.
United Nations has framed conventions related to physical education, sports, countering doping and discrimination in sports and India has a long way to go as it does not have a comprehensive law to deal with issues arising out of various sports.
