We, at the Sports Law & Policy Centre (SLPC) look forward to virtually hosting you at the fifth edition of the Symposium on July 02 and July 03, 2021. The SLPC Symposium is our annual flagship conference and represents our continuing commitment to thought leadership in India by bringing together leading sports law practitioners, sports policy experts, in-house counsel, researchers, academicians, sports administrators, athletes, NGOs and students in India to exchange and share their experiences and learnings on various aspects of the law and policy relating to sports in India.
The SLPC Symposium 2021 will focus on women’s sport, and in particular The Equal Hue Project, which aims to chart the way forward for women’s cricket in India. The Equal Hue Project is a joint collaboration among Ms. Snehal Pradhan, Ms. Karunya Keshav and the SLPC. Based on a research report authored by Ms. Pradhan and Ms. Keshav titled ‘An Equal Hue – The Way Forward for the Women in Blue‘ which was launched and presented at The Sports Law and Policy Symposium, 2020, the Equal Hue Project intends to offer suggestions on improving excellence in Indian women’s cricket and setting up pathways for players.
We would like to give you a brief overview of what to expect on Day One of #Symposium2021. Our moderator for the panel discussion tomorrow has also recommended some reading material for attendees to go through, which we have included.
