Budapest – Sports Law


Nothing ventured, nothing gain. 

At long last, Budapest is finally ready to organize a SELS.  Why did we choose Sports Law as our topic?

It is really simple. Sports Law covers a huge spectrum of matters, including contract, tort, antitrust, agency, constitutional, labor, trademark, criminal, Sex Discrimination and tax issues. Although Hungary is a relatively small country, it has been successful in several different sports. Each sport presents unique situations for everyone involved to be aware of.  Sports Law cases can affect sports teams, individual athletes, coaches, and entire sporting bodies and organizations as well so it is important to have qualified professionals on the field who could provide expertise over the intricacies of particular cases. 

 At last but not least, Budapest was the European Capital of Sport in 2019. The title had been granted to the city by the European Capitals of Sport Association (ACES), as over the past few years Budapest demonstrated its hospitality and skills in organizing major sports events.
