April’s issue of World Sports Advocate

April's issue of World Sports Advocate - formerly World Sports Law Report - provides expert analysis and thought leadership on the key legal, regulatory and policy issues impacting sports business.

This month's issue focuses on a range of topics relevant to the sporting world, including whistleblowing, digital media, recent Court of Arbitration for Sport jurisprudence, taxation and piracy. 

Highlights include an indepth article by Jack Mitchell, a Barrister at Old Square Chambers, on whistleblowing in sport. Jack provides expert insight into the whistleblowing systems within other industries and what sport can learn from these successes and failings, as well as assessing the World Anti-Doping Agency's new 'Speak Up!' initiative which aims to provide a 'secure digital platform' for reporting any act or ommission that could undermine the fight against doping in sport.

Andrew Smith, a Barrister at Matrix Chambers, then provides detailed insight into recent jurisprudence coming out of the Court of Arbitration for Sport on 'just cause' contract termination. Andrew provides commentary on several rulings and asks pertinant questions relating to the termination of employment contracts.
