Sport Law & Strategy Group Blogs about Rowan’s Law
Sport Law & Strategy Group – April 12th, 2018 – The Sport Law & Strategy Group (SLSG) is committed to sharing relevant knowledge to sport leaders using a variety of mediums including newsletters, webinars, workshops, keynotes, educational sessions, and blogs.
In this most recent blogpost, lawyer Steve Indig reviews “Rowan’s Law”, the concussion management legislation that will affect every sport organization in Ontario. Importantly, the law is not yet in effect and sport organizations will not have to take immediate action – but they should be prepared to act soon. Other jurisdictions should also be ready for similar legislation to be introduced in their province.
The SLSG has developed concussion management guidelines for sport organizations based on the 5th Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport (April 2017) and we are always watching for updates in this area.
