Pia Ek and Hilma-Karoliina Markkanen Contribute to The Sports Law Review

Pia Ek and Hilma-Karoliina Markkanen have authored the chapter on Finland in The Sports Law Review, 1st Edition, published by Law Business Research Ltd in January 2016.

Sports law is not a single legal topic, but rather a field of law that includes a wide variety of legal areas, such as contract, corporate, intellectual property, civil procedure, arbitration and criminal law. The Sports Law Review covers the special characteristics of sports law in sixteen jurisdictions. The chapter on Finland examines sports regulation from numerous perspectives, for example, the establishment and management of sports organisations and associations, the organisation of sporting events and the unique legal issues relating to professional sports.
