Despina MAVROMATI, The Appeal Procedure Before the CAS. Key Insights and Practical Tips

Since its creation by the International Olympic Committee in 1984, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has evolved into an independent arbitral tribunal and the “supreme court” of sports-related disputes at the international level, administering several hundred of cases every year. The CAS functions predominantly as an appellate tribunal, reviewing decisions rendered by the internal tribunal of sports federations. Such appeal mechanism differs from commercial arbitration in many aspects. Despina MAVROMATI takes us through the specificities of the appeal procedure before the CAS in light of the latest amendment of the CAS Code in November 2022, with a focus on the key procedural aspects that counsel without previous experience in sports arbitration should bear in mind.
