CAS Seminar

8th Conference SAV-TAS/CAS in Sports Law

In line with a long tradition, the conference, jointly organized with TAS/CAS international, will be held again this year on 30.9. and 1.10.2022 at the Hotel Beau Rivage.

This event, held every 2 years, is addressed to CAS arbitrators, mediators, legal advisors (counsel) and lawyers working in the fields of arbitration and sports law, but also to representatives of federations or associations in the "sports business" whose contracts or bylaws provide for the resolution of any dispute before the CAS.

This international event will address, in the first part of the first day, topics of great practical importance in the field of sports law, such as the latest developments in the fight against doping. In the second part of the first day, speakers will address from different perspectives the issue of legislative and judicial powers of sports associations and the increasing tendency to test the validity of certain provisions under a competition law or a human rights perspective.

The second day is traditionally dedicated to an analysis of CAS jurisprudence. In the field of international football, not only will there be a review of the case-law, but there will also be a presentation of the latest developments related to the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.

The conference language will be English only. Simultaneous translation is not provided.
