Launched in 2018, The Sports Law Clinic provides pro bono representation to athletes across Canada and the Caribbean for a wide variety of matters (doping, disciplinary, team selection, etc).


The clinic was founded by Dr. Emir Crowne, one of Canada's and the Caribbean's most prolific and sought after sports lawyers. Dr. Crowne has argued matters before sporting tribunals based in Canada, Malta, Switzerland, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago and the Olympics.

The clinic is also staffed by Ms. Amanda Fowler, a Toronto-based sports lawyer and Mr. Matthew Gayle, a Trinidad-based barrister and attorney-at-law. 

Depending on the nature of the tribunal, we are usually able to act as either counsel or representatives across a wide variety of sporting disputes.

The clinic operates throughout Canada and the Caribbean, with offices in London, Ontario (Canada) and Port-of-Spain (Trinidad).

Prospective clients must satisfy a means test, and other formalities, before any case is accepted on a pro bono basis.
