Sport’s influence on all areas of law

Lawyers don’t always appreciate just how pervasive sport is  not just in discourse and society but also in the operational practice of law. Those who aren’t paying attention should do so, particularly given how many lessons can be gleaned for best practice.

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Thomson Geer partner Jacquie Seemann about the need for greater cognisance about the place of sport in shaping the direction of society and legal practice, the lessons to be taken from recent sporting controversies both in Australia and globally, the extent to which the community wants sportspeople to discuss important issues, the advent of “sportswashing”, and how integral sport is to the development and functioning of society and its lawyers.

Ms Seemann also discusses her lifelong participation in sports, winning medals at the Maccabiah Games, her involvement in community projects, why keeping up her personal investment in sports is so important to her, and the flow-on benefits she sees for society from sports.
