The 2020 Olympics was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now scheduled for July of 2021, the future of the games remains unclear as many parts of the world are still experiencing dangerous virus flare-ups.
The Pepperdine Caruso Law Dispute Resolution Law Journal Symposium brings together leaders in international sports law to address the uncertain future of the Olympic Games and how it affects athletes, national governments, and all other parties responsible for making the event a reality. The half-day program will begin with a keynote address by Lord Sebastian Coe, President of World Athletics, followed by two panel discussions featuring prominent attorneys, law scholars, and representatives from the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and the US government. The event will conclude with a lunch-time networking event sponsored by the Caruso Law Palmer Center for Entrepreneurship and the Law.
