Doping is the biggest problem facing sport.

The World Anti-Doping Code has been adopted by sporting organisations worldwide at both national and international level to provide a consistent and harmonised approach to anti-doping measures. The adoption of the Code, and its interpretation and application by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, has brought about great changes in sports law.

This book provides a guide to the Code, illustrated through summaries of decisions by the Court of Arbitration for Sport and national level tribunals which show the Code in operation. It will assist all those involved in sport, whether as administrators, coaches or players, together with those who advise in the area and those interested in the operation of the current anti-doping regime.

The book also explains the Amendments to the Code agreed in 2007 which came into force in January 2009.

  • Case summaries illustrate the key principles of the Code and earlier anti-doping regimes
  • Reviews the amendments due to come into force in January 2009
  • Written by a barrister who regularly represents athletes and sporting bodies in tribunals and before the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
