The Future of Alternative Dispute Resolution in Sport

Anthony Lo Surdo SC writes for Resolution Institute on the future of Alternate Dispute Resolution in Sport: the National Sports Tribunal.

However, given the breadth of sporting interests which range from amateur, to semi-professional and professional, not all sports are well-equipped to determine the types of disputes that frequently arise between participants. The National Sports Tribunal was established to level the playing field in the area of sports dispute resolution by providing for an effective, efficient, independent, transparent and specialist tribunal for the fair hearing and resolution of sporting disputes. It does so by employing a full suite of ADR processes and…
