Professor of Sports Law, Melbourne Law School, University of Melbourne

Jack Anderson lectures in sports law and is a Professor of Law at Queen’s University, Belfast. He has published widely in the area of sports law – including books on the Legality of Boxing (2007); A Textbook on Modern Sports Law (2010); and Leading Cases in Sports Law (ed, 2013).

His current research interest, as a partner investigator with the Australian Centre for Policing and Security and Interpol, is gambling-led corruption in sport. A Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, Jack is a panel member on various national sports dispute resolution bodies such as Sports Resolutions (UK) and Just Sport Ireland.

He still plays hurling (badly); is from Limerick (so follows “de rubby”); is a supporter of (no sniggering) Watford FC/Udinese B; and basically has an interest in any sport that you can bet on.
