About the Seminar

The development of sports as a tool of entrainment for the human beings has age old history. However, in the contemporary era, apart from being a popular en­trainment activity, it has the importance of various kinds. Many are rele­vant for education, health – physical and mental.

It is a tool of integration and tolerance open to all, regardless of age, language, religion, culture, and provides the opportunity to play by commonly agreed on rules with fairness in success and failure. Such entrainment activity has been coupled with huge commercial value.

Such commercial value has brought various unethical, illegal, and unfair practices including from the spectators. Competitive sports lead to categoriza­tion, ranking, and distinguishing people based on physical attributes eventually creating a stigma.

To understand the commercial value, international sporting events account for more than 3% of the world trade. In the EU, it accounts for 3.7% of the combined GNP of 27-member states of Europe. In India, sports-relat­ed activities contribute approximately 12% to the annual GDP growth.

To regulate these issues, Sports Law as a new sphere emerged in­ternationally and domestically. The entire ecosystem encompasses regulations relating to anti-discrimination, anti-doping, sports federations, taxations, med­ical protocols, and dispute settlement.
