In this webinar, we took a legal look at anti-doping by examining hearing panels, with a particular focus on the Anti-Doping and Appeal divisions of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The aim of the session was to explain what happens, and what to expect during the hearing process, such as:
- What is CAS and the CAS Anti-Doping Division?
- What is the decision-making process?
- Who testifies, and what evidence is presented?
- How and by whom are the parties represented?
- Who is the judge or arbitrator?
- What is the appeal process?
There are also a number of steps that take place before a case is heard by a hearing panel, and where resolution can be reached. We also took the time to address this, putting the review by hearing panels into the wider results management context. The two expert panellists of this session were Damien Clivaz, Senior Legal Counsel for the ITA, and Fabien Cagneux, Managing Counsel of the CAS Anti-Doping Division of the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
They took us through all of this and de-mystified the process by presenting the most important, and practical information you need to know in the context of anti-doping rule violations, athlete rights, hearing panels and much more.
