Don't miss "The Influence of Law and the Court of Arbitration for Sport on International Sports and the Olympics", a CLE on Thursday, September 18 from noon to 1 p.m.

The CLE will cover the intricate, complex matrix of public and private laws that international sports organizing committees are subject to, including the Olympic Committee. 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. 

This seminar will explore these relationships and legal regimes and the processes by which the CAS interprets and enforces them. Gary Roberts of Bose McKinney & Evans LLP and IU McKinney School of Law will be the featured speaker.

Register here! Sports and Entertainment Plus CLE Section members and Senior Counsel Plus CLE Division members may attend the seminar for free.
