The Making of a Lex Sportiva by the Court of Arbitration for Sport
“Sports law is not just international; it is nongovernmental as well, and this differentiates it from all other forms of law.”1 Sports rules are genuine “global law” because they are applied across the entire world, they involve both international and domestic levels, and they directly affect individuals: This happens, for instance, in the case of the Olympic Charter, a private act of a “constitutional nature” with which all States comply,2 or in the case of the World Anti-Doping Code, a document that provides the framework for the harmonization of anti-doping policies, rules, and regulations within sports organizations and among public authorities.
