This Handbook presents a comprehensive collection of essays by leading scholars and practitioners in the burgeoning field of international sports law.

The authors address significant legal issues on two gradually converging tracks: the mainstream institutional framework of the law, primarily the International Olympic Committee, international sports federations, regional and national sports authority, and the Court of Arbitration for Sport; and the commercial sports industry.

Topics include:-

  • the institutional structure;
  • fundamental issues, legal principles and decisions within those institutions;
  • mediation, arbitration and litigation of disputes;
  • doping, gambling and the expanding use of technology in competition;
  • athlete eligibility requirements;
  • discrimination; and protection of athletes.
The book also covers a broad range of commercial issues related to competition law and labor markets; media, image, and intellectual property rights; event sponsorships; and players' agents. Comparative analyses of young sports models and practices in North America, Europe and elsewhere supplement the general theme of international sports law.

This major collection of essays on some of the most controversial, cutting-edge issues in international sports law, will be a captivating read for academics and students of sports law, sports management, international law and comparative law, as well as practicing lawyers and players' agents. Senior executives and other professionals in the sports industry will also find much to interest them in this well-documented Handbook.
