‘The lawyer before the sporting authorities, or the win-win relationship’

The disciplinary system provided by volunteers, who are highly knowledgeable regarding the rules of the game but often not professional lawyers, can be reinforced by the presence of professional lawyers in terms of preparation, debates, exchanges and proceedings. This results in a win-win relationship between the lawyer and the disciplinary body.

‘Child Abuse in Sport’ Conference

Intensive sports activity, especially among children, can contribute to the generation of pathologies linked to the repetitive gestures as well as influencing their development. The participants of this conference summarise the existing data and analyses in order to assess these effects.

In addition, children are the subject of special attention due to their placement in training centres. With the children’s advocate represented at this conference, participants approach the existing situation and its effects.

‘International law and doping’

Sports medicine is just as concerned with extra-territoriality and internationality as sport itself, especially in one of its aspects, doping. ‘Internationality’ can manifest itself in the transportation of substances, but also in the context of tests carried out in France on foreign sportspeople or abroad on French sportspeople, or sanctions and their consequences in France and abroad, not to mention the availability of national or international law through the arbitration of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). This submission of national law to international law once an extraneous criterion arises in a judicial context has been all the more evident since the adoption of the World Anti-Doping Code in 2003 by the sports movement, and the adoption of the UNESCO International Convention against Doping in Sport in 2005, strengthening the existing mechanism of the Anti-Doping Convention adopted by the Council of Europe member states in 1989.

‘Fundamental guarantees with respect to disciplinary process – some reflections’

A broader view of the international nature of sport, especially sports disciplinary proceedings, based on the fundamental rights in sport drawn in particular from the European Convention on Human Rights and the Council of Europe’s Convention against Doping in Sport but also the American Constitution. These bases make it possible to identify common fundamental principles to ensure the smooth running of disciplinary proceedings.

‘The World Anti-Doping Code’

After the World Anti-Doping Agency unveiled the first World Anti-Doping Code in Copenhagen on March 5, 2003, there remain many thoughts, questions, enthusiasms and disappointments, as well as the certainty of much work still to be done and many potential diverse reasonings for lawyers.

‘Human rights and sports’

This work was presented as part of the 2nd Conference of the Hellenic Sports Law Research Center in Athens in 2001.

It aims to highlight the possible application of fundamental rights to the field of sport for the protection of the rights of the sportsman, sports bodies, and the effectiveness of disciplinary, penal or administrative proceedings, with European law going beyond the strict distinctions often found in national law in these contexts.
