The Sport and Recreation Law Association is a nonprofit corporation. Our purpose is to further the study and dissemination of information regarding legal aspects of sport and recreation; we host an annual SRLA Conference to meet this goal. Further, the Association addresses legal aspects of sport and recreation within both the public and private sectors.
The Association serves academicians and practitioners in private and public sport and recreation settings. Members have diverse educational and experiential backgrounds and represent a variety of occupations and interests. They may teach or be students at institutions of higher education (sport and recreation management programs, law schools), practice law, operate risk management firms, or serve in other related fields.
