Center for Sports Law and Policy


Center for Sports Law and Policy

The Center for Sports Law and Policy at Duke Law School is a forum for sports law and policy-related engagement and programming at the University. Consistent with Duke’s interdisciplinary strengths, the work of the Center examines:

  • the business of professional, Olympic, and education-based sport
  • the welfare of athletes, including their health and educational development
  • the promise of sport as a social good

Affiliated faculty at the Law School and the University bring the tools of their respective academic disciplines to bear on this work, and alumni and guests contribute on-the-ground context and expertise.
