Sport has its own codes of behaviour and its own judicial processes—which at times seem at odds with the general community. Issues like assault, bullying, drugs and discrimination can be managed differently on the field and off.

Some sports play by their own rules—but is the pressure mounting for greater alignment between behaviours and cultures in sport and what’s acceptable elsewhere? The Victoria Law Foundation’s The Law and You Forum presents a topic of broad public interest, and this year, we explore the state of play in sport: where does it differ from community standards? Where is it off the pace? And where is it more progressive?

We’ll bring together a panel of lawyers and commentators for a lively and insightful conversation about sport and the law.
