International Sports Law was the first book published on this timely subject. Since its publication 15 years ago, the core issues have changed substantially and the law has expanded dramatically.

Social and economic issues have largely replaced the political issues of the Cold War and open competition among amateurs and professionals has redefined the rules of eligibility for competition. The pervasive use of steroids and other performance-enhancing substances has reached critical proportions while corruption has tainted the Olympics and other competition.

The complicated process of resolving sports-related disputes, led by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, has become a significant topic. The second edition of International Sports Law introduces many new topics, including:-

  • the human rights of athletes,
  • the use of instant replay cameras and computers to resolve disputes during competition,
  • corruption in the sports arena,
  • the emerging lex sportiva derived from arbitral awards,
  • ambush marketing and other commercial issues.;
Commentary on the international legal framework, European regional law, and doping is substantially enlarged and the book features in-depth case studies of recent dispute resolution.
