  • First book with leading cases in international sports law covering wide jurisdictional reference to “sport” in US Supreme Court, UK House of Lords, European Court of Justice and Court of Arbitration for Sport
  • Unique gathering of some of the leading sports law jurists, arbitrators and practitioners worldwide
  • Excellent research resource for those in sports law

This collection of key cases in sports law accounts for both the historical development of the topic and critical, contemporary issues in sports law.  The collection includes case law from numerous jurisdictions across the common and civil law traditions and includes leading awards at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which individually have contributed to the robustness of modern sports law. It is written by over 20 leading sports law academics and practitioners drawn from over a dozen jurisdictions worldwide. The collection will interest practitioners, students and sports law academics  and will also appeal to those interested in the study of sport more generally. Although organised thematically, the individual submissions provide careful and in-depth analysis of each case, outlining its factual background, isolating its key principles and placing it in its wider context. 


The self-contained nature of the chapters provides an ease of reference and, collectively, ensures an engaging array of voices and perspectives on this area of law.  This book is a must have for every sports law library, sports law practitioner or student interested in the area.


Professor Jack Anderson is director of Education, School of Law, Queen's University Belfast, UK.
