Speakers and delegates who participated in Josoor Institute’s course titled ‘The Law and Its Implications for Sport & Events Practitioners’, which was held on 18-19 November, and concluded successfully. The course drew an attendance of more than 40 delegates from Qatar and the region, including delegates from regional FAs of Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Yemen. The introductory two-day course, which is part of the ongoing programme of educational events run by Josoor Institute, brought together a range of speakers from leading sports consultancies and global law firms to share industry insights and best practice, enabling attendees to take away a comprehensive understanding of the local and international legal principles affecting them on a daily basis.
In the background of this course, Josoor Institute also conducted its first networking event. The event was targeted for lawyers in Qatar and had discussions revolving the future of the legal system in Qatar and how organisations like Josoor Institute can be facilitators. Speakers that delivered sessions over the two days and participated in the networking event included Richard McLaren, CEO, and Bob Copeland, Senior VP, McLaren Global Sport Solutions; Ahmad Anani, Deputy Office Managing Partner, Latham & Watkins Abu Dhabi; Ben Bye, Senior Commercial Lawyer at the International Cricket Council; and Andreas Zagklis, Attorney at Law, Martens Rechtsanwälte.
