Chadwick Lawrence advise Town’s scholars

Club partner Chadwick Lawrence’s Sports and Employment law specialists, Neil Wilson and Daniel Krigers, have delivered a ‘Personal Code of Conduct’ presentation to Huddersfield Town’s new Academy scholars.

The seminar, now in its fifth year, informs sporting professionals on how to avoid the pitfalls of being in the public eye and challenges them to adopt their own personal code of conduct to avoid this. 

Neil and Daniel worked closely with Town’s Head of Education and Welfare Karen Crosland in developing the presentation, which was delivered to the eight new first year Academy scholars; Fraser Horsfall, Jack Senior, Nathaniel Pells, Sheiden Rodgers, Philip Billing, Danny Kane, Ben Atkinson and Bradley Carroll.. 

Neil Wilson, Sports and Employment law specialist at Chadwick Lawrence said: “Daniel and I developed the seminar with sporting professionals specifically in mind. Quite often we see such people reported in the media in various compromising situations. It is therefore important that the sports stars of tomorrow understand how to behave in the public eye and what the consequences of their actions could lead to.” 

Karen Crosland of Huddersfield Town added: “We have a long standing relationship with Chadwick Lawrence, who have delivered this seminar year on year. It’s important for our young players to understand the importance of having a personal code of conduct, particularly in a career which could lead to them being in the public eye. Neil and Daniel deliver the seminar in an informal way which always prompts some great debates and questions. We look forward to next year’s!”
