Sports law conference moves venue following strong demand

Robert McTernagh

Organisers of the Sports Law Bar Association of Ireland’s (SLBA) inaugural conference say they have been forced to move the conference to a larger venue due to strong demand.

SLBA secretary Robert McTernaghan BL told Irish Legal News that the conference has been moved to a larger room within the Law Library to accommodate the “mind-blowing” interest.

Mr McTernaghan added: “Since we announced the keynote speaker, Dr Ross Tucker, my inbox hasn’t stopped.

“We have a broad range of attendees — barristers, solicitors, in house counsel with sporting governing bodies and associations, and academics from all over the island.”

The all-Ireland association of barristers with specialist sports law knowledge and practices was founded last year to increase awareness of sports law provide the most up-to-date advice to sports law clients.

Mr McTernaghan said the association’s inaugural conference would draw “on national and international expertise in the field”.
