This week Prof. Benoît Pasquier LL.M. held the Professional Football Leagues & the EL – Mission, Structure and Main activities. Students learned many new skills and got a great insight into the difference between the European League of Football and the Professional Football Leagues based in the U.S. Their general activities as well as mission and structure were compared and discussed.
