The laws which interplay with the sports industry affect the stakeholders’ lives on a day-to-day basis, ergo, it is imperative to understand the rights, duties and obligations arising out of the same. Owing to a lack of specific regulations especially in the Indian context, the multiplicity of these laws, diminishing relevance of older laws, and the complex nature in which they have been drafted, developing a clear understanding is definitely not an easy task – and this is where ‘ASK SLPRR’ comes in. ‘ASK SLPRR’ is our flagship project to develop an open access resource that provides simplified and reliable legal information.
Our vision is to eliminate the gatekeeping of legal awareness in sport by making relevant laws more accessible to non-legal minds.
In order to provide comprehensive information on various sports laws in an easy to understand language, we are identifying various relevant laws, analysing the available jurisprudence on the same, and finally presenting them in interesting formats; this will provide our community with a more immersive, personal, and easy way to garner sports law knowledge. The funda of the project is to essentially make sports law jurisprudence accessible to all stakeholders.
The project is collaborative in nature and you can be a part of this initiative by referring to the guidelines given at the bottom of this page.
