The spectre of drugs in sport is never far from the headlines. We talk with Professor Patrick Keyzer, Head of the La Trobe Law School, and explore the issue of drugs in sport from the perspective of a lawyer who advises clients (players and sporting associations) about mitigating relevant risks. Professor Keyzer successfully represented a former player of the Essendon Football Club in a quest to obtain documents, and a settlement, after the now infamous supplements scandal. Professor Keyzer is also the inaugural chair of the new Australian Fitness Industry Standards Council. This podcast is sponsored by Latrobe’s Law School, which celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year.
