The duty of care in sport in light of the review by Baroness Grey-Thompson

In December 2015, as part of its ‘Sporting Future’ strategy, the UK Government asked Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson to conduct an independent review of the duty of care that sport has towards its participants. That review - the ‘Duty of Care in Sport’ - was published in April 2017 and follows seven themes: education, transition (within and when leaving a sport), representation (of participants), equality/diversity/inclusion, safeguarding, mental welfare and safety/injury/medical issues. William Norris QC, a Barrister at 39 Essex Chambers, focuses in this article on the circumstances in which a legal as opposed to a moral duty is imposed in English law in the context of the Duty of Care in Sport review.
