The Sport and Recreation Law Association aims to study and disseminate 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, and serves academicians and practitioners in private and public sport and recreation settings.
