Running the Gauntlet: Lawyers at Sports Disciplinary Hearings: An Athlete’s PerspectiveThe Sports Law Bar Association will host its first joint Sports Law CPD between the Bar of Ireland and the Bar





The Sports Law Bar Association will host its first joint Sports Law CPD between the Bar of Ireland and the Bar of Northern Ireland at 4.30pm on Friday, 26 April at the Inns of Court, Chichester Street, Belfast. Chaired by Emma Davey BL.


The Panellists are:

Elizabeth Colvin, Olympian and Solicitor, 

Paddy Barnes, Olympian and IABA Ulster Club Development Officer,

Conor Sally, Cathaoirleach of Omagh St Enda’s GAA Club and Solicitor.


The joint CPD will take place as an informal fireside chat with the three panelists, chaired by Emma Davey BL. The panelist will explore their experiences in sport and insights into the difficulties faced by athletes when involved in disciplinary and/or legal issues during their careers. The purpose of the event is to understand how lawyers can better represent and advise athletes during such vulnerable times.


We are very pleased that the Attorney General of Northern Ireland, Dame Brenda King, has kindly agreed to open the joint CPD and the Attorney General of Ireland, Mr Rossa Fanning SC, will bring this event to a close.


The free learning event is open to both barristers and solicitors from across the island of Ireland.
