Conference Date: 9th April, 2022

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.

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.
