ICC YAF: Ready, Set, Arbitrate: The ins and outs of sports arbitration

Al-Ansari & Associates Partner, Salman Al-Ansari is speaking at the ICC YAF event in New York. The event is hosted by Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and Affiliates at 4 Times, New York, NY 10037.


The field of sports arbitration is a multifaceted legal landscape. While it involves aspects that are unique to the sports industry (such as competitive play, athlete suspensions, and collective bargaining), it shares many commonalities with commercial arbitration. This panel will explore the intersection of these two areas of law with emerging experts in the field, with a focus on the ways in which practitioners can leverage commercial arbitration experience in sports-related cases. The panel will also examine recent landmark decisions by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, including the case of Caster Semenya, which has put a spotlight on sports arbitration and ignited a debate about human rights, gender, and ethics.
