RWY Sports Law Conference


RWY is probably amongst the few law firms in Malaysia who organises and hosts our very own law conference. In 2013 and 2014, we hosted the RWY Sports Law Conference.


In tandem with exploring the frontiers of Sports Law in Malaysia, the purpose and objective of these conferences was to create a platform to generate discussion and exchange views about Sports Law. The conferences were successful with firm feedback from the delegates to organise the conferences again. Plans are underway to hold another Sports Law Conference in the near future.
