Everton team up with LJMU School of Law

03/09/2014  Comments (1)  jump
Everton's Head of Legal Services will give a budding generation of law students an insight into the fascinating world of football as he takes up a post as guest lecturer at Liverpool John Moores University.

Starting later this month, Chris Anderson will deliver a series of sessions for those studying Sports Law to help bring their studies to life and explain how the law is applied at a Premier League football club.

He will talk to students about the transfer of football players, employee status of footballers and the regulations surrounding financial fair play.

Chris, who studied Law at the University of Edinburgh, joined Everton in March 2014 and previously worked as an external legal advisor in football acting for many clubs in the Premier League and Scottish Premier League. Now, he is keen to help pass on his knowledge to the latest cohort of law students at Liverpool John Moores University.

Chris said: It's a real honour to be able to help aspiring young people to become the best they can be in their chosen field. Sports Law is a complicated practice area so being able to explain how it is applied in a real-life situation will hopefully aid their understanding and add a different dimension to their studies.

From the Club's perspective, linking up with LJMU allows us to give something back and to help students in the local area to embody the Nil Satis approach that we keenly promote.

The partnership has been arranged with LJMU's School of Law LLB Programme Leader David Lower and Sports Law module leader Eric Baskind.

David added: Chris' invaluable practical experience will enhance the student learning experience on the LLB's Sports Law module and give a unique insight into the application of the law relating to issues related to sport.'

As part of the partnership, Everton will also offer the opportunity for student work placements within the Legal Services team at Goodison Park.

The Club already shares close links with LJMU, with the School of Science working closely alongside the university's Sports Science department on a regular basis.

Hope he wasn't involved with the Henen deal, as his credibility will have plummeted, if that was the case.
