The Swiss International Sports Arbitration Reports will for the first time provide a full English translation of the decisions made by the Swiss Federal Supreme Court in setting aside proceedings against awards made by Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) panels, irrespective of whether the original decision was published in the German, French or Italian language, or whether the decision has been officially published or is simply available on the Court’s website. The English translation is presented parallel to the original text of each decision, and is preceded by a head note and a summary of the decision for the reader in a hurry.
The importance of the CAS based in Lausanne is well known to all practitioners engaged in sports law and arbitration. It was once famously described as the Supreme Court of World Sports. Whether a CAS panel decides in ordinary arbitration proceedings or in an appeal brought against the decision of a federation, association or sports related body, the Swiss Federal Supreme Court in Lausanne has the last word where the dissatisfied party challenges the CAS panel’s decision in court proceedings.
This work is edited by two well-known Swiss practitioners, both of whom are engaged full-time in international arbitration as counsel and arbitrators, and have published widely on issues of international law and arbitration.
This publication will be of great use to arbitrators, parties, lawyers involved in sports arbitration as well as commentators who will benefit from access to case law in one key jurisdiction for international sports arbitration.
