This Summer School offers unique insights into the legal context in which international sports organizations currently operate as well as into the limits to their autonomy (6 ECTS). Participants will also explore the relevance of state law, more particularly of criminal law in sports-related matters. The focus is on one of the most heavily regulated matters in organised sport, namely the fight against doping. The course will examine in particular

  • the history of anti-doping 
  • the stakeholders and actors involved in anti-doping -
  • the legislative and procedural framework of the sports organisations in the fight against doping
  • the role and the functioning of criminal and international law related to anti-doping and
  • interdisciplinary aspects of anti-doping.

Participants will be able to put their knowledge into practice in a Moot Court/Case Study designed specifically for this Summer School, allowing everyone to engage actively with a fictional case in the field of anti-doping.
