(MENAFN Editorial) Josoor Institute will be hosting a 'sport networking event' at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Doha, on 18 November 2014. The event will be held from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and is aimed at discussing contemporary legal practice and issues in sport, and is exclusive for lawyers and legal practitioners in Qatar. It will see a range of key global speakers and experts share their insights on legal issues in sports, presenting case studies, best practice and any relevant regional insights to those working within the business of sport.
The evening will include a panel interview featuring Ben Bye, Senior Commercial Lawyer, International Cricket Council (ICC) who will be interviewed on recent practice and issues for the ICC such as its recently completed broadcast rights negotiations. Bye will be joined by Richard McClaren from McClaren Global Sport Solution, Ahmad Anani from Latham Watkins and Andreas Zagklis from Martens RechtsanwÃ¤lte Law Firm, who will discuss the relevance of sports issues for legal practice including drugs, corruption, and governance, among other issues.
This networking event is being held as part of Josoor Institute's forthcoming short-course, titled, 'Law and its Implications on Sports and Event Practitioners', which will help in understanding both the unique needs and the legal environment of these industries on an international scale. It will also provide a basic understanding of the local and international legal principles that affect day-to-day roles.

Josoor Institute was inspired and developed by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (formerly known as Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee). It addresses the Supreme Committee's strategic goal to 'build high quality talent and establish a centre of excellence' and is designed to deliver world-class education and training to the people of Qatar, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
Josoor Institute will train many of the people who will play an integral role in Qatar's hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cupâ„¢. These individuals will then have the knowledge to deliver large-scale sporting and non-sporting events across the region long after 2022. Josoor Institute aims to be a catalyst for transforming the sports and events industries in the region and set new standards globally.
