[Extract] The law of negligence requires any party one is considered by law to owe another party a duty of care, to take reasonable steps to prevent the other party from getting injured. If there is a breach of that duty and the other party suffers harm, then the first party may liable in a negligence claim. Within sport, it is the implementation of a suitable risk management scheme that will usually take care of the duty of care requirements. This paper will therefore examine the application of the law of negligence to the sporting context, and what is involved with a risk management scheme.
