Latest amendments to the CAS Code: What you need to know

 

Introduction

On 1 January 2016, the latest amendments to the Code of Sports-related Arbitration came into effect.1 Commonly known as the “CAS Code,” these rules and regulations govern the procedure the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

For those lawyers actively engaged at the CAS, recognising and understanding the amendments are fundamental to best practices and effective advocacy on behalf of a client.

For those who aren’t actively engaged at the CAS, we hope that this article helps provide a better understanding of the arbitral body for which much of sport relies on for dispute resolution and some of the rules that govern it.

In this article, we will review each of the amendments made to the CAS Code in a format that we hope will be accessible to both those who appear before the CAS and those in sport who want to keep apprised of the ongoing developments at sport’s “supreme court.”
