The Code of the Court of Arbitration for Sport: Commentary, Cases and Materials is a comprehensive exploration of the provisions of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Providing detailed analysis of the CAS Rules, this is an indispensable work of reference for all sports law practitioners. Each provision is viewed within the larger context of international arbitration, in Switzerland, and procedural solutions are suggested which are transposable to international arbitration generally.

  • Fully understand the work of the CAS. Graphs and charts are used to explain practice and sample documents are included to show the exact procedure that is followed.

The Code of the Court of Arbitration for Sport: Commentary, Cases and Materials is an essential resource for anyone working in sports law, with guidance given on the following:

  • how to validly establish CAS jurisdiction
