While we regularly see issues and trends in the sport, tourism, and recreation industries make headlines in the media the, sometimes, underlying legal issues might not be as obvious. However, it is incumbent for a competent manager to understand how certain decisions, actions and the like might carry important legal implications. The three-part Sport Law Project in this course provides students the opportunity to explore a legal issue of their choosing from a variety of instructive methods. As a result, the Sport Law Project is comprised of the following three assignments: an annotated bibliography, a written paper, and a risk management presentation. The Annotated Bibliography assignment helps students delve into the scholarly literature in order to inform their breadth and depth of knowledge regarding the issue being examined. The Paper assignment allows students the opportunity to develop their knowledge base by presenting literature and legal evidence on their chosen topic and applying the outcomes and lessons to managerial practice. Finally, the Risk Management Presentation assignment creates the pragmatic yet hypothetical, ‘if I had to present this topic to my staff in an employee training workshop, what key information about this legal issue do I need to convey from a risk management perspective?’
In order to complete this assignment you will create a 15 to 20-slide PowerPoint presentation that combines the D.I.M. process of risk management to the managerial application section of your research paper. The D.I.M. process is covered in course readings and provides you with a conceptual framework for your presentation including how to incorporate and apply the requisite matrices for your legal issue. Depending on your legal issues topic, you may need to adapt some aspects from your paper in order to develop a risk management plan that could mitigate plausible concerns for managerial practice. As suggested in the overview above, create the PowerPoint Presentation as if it is intended to train employees on the process, plan, and practical treatments of risk management for your particular legal issue.
