Writings

Since its founding in 1992, the Sport Law & Strategy Group has written extensively on topics of interest to sport people. Our articles have appeared in magazines like Coaches Plan (formerly Coaches Report), LawNow, Canadian Lawyer, The Lawyer’s Weekly, and numerous academic journals. We have also published many books over the years, and our regular newsletters contain useful written pieces for sport leaders.

This section of our web site compiles all the books and articles that we have written since 1992, organized conveniently by subject categories and subcategories. We have also included a few articles and reports written by other authors, which are published here with their permission. The categories and subcategories are fairly self-explanatory, but if you are having trouble finding a particular article, you can also search for it by subject, source, author or year.

We encourage you to come back to this page often, as we post new material on a regular basis. If you would like to stay up-to-date on our new postings, you can join our Facebook page and receive notices about new writings and announcements.
