The Influence of Law and the Court of Arbitration for Sport on International Sports and the Olympics
Continuing Legal Education
September 18, 2014 Thursday 12:00pm - 1:00pm
The Olympic Games are the pinnacle and most visible of international sporting events, but the Olympic movement itself is just the tip of the iceberg. International sports involve over 100 international sports federations each governing a sport.
The International Olympic Committee, along with its 190+ national Olympic committee members, operate the Olympic Games and is closely associated with two offshoot organizations, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). These organizations and their various associations run literally thousands of sporting events around the world every year, and each organization is governed and operates under a set of rules (or private contracts) that it applies and enforces.
But all of these organizations are subject to a complex matrix of public and private laws, and any disputes about whether and how these laws are applied are ultimately submitted to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
This seminar will explore these relationships and legal regimes and the processes by which the CAS interprets and enforces them.
Please note: lunch is not included with this seminar. Brown bag lunches are welcome. Carryout is also available from the Labor District Cafe on the second floor of our building. Online ordering is available here.
