For 3 days, you will get a unique insight into Sports Law, the beautiful city of Zurich, and its prestigious university. Make sure not to miss this opportunity! Switzerland is a global hub for Sports Law and notably Sports Law Arbitration: From the FIFA Headquarters to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS/TAS) and the WADA Regional Office in Lausanne, every renowned sports organization has a link to our country. Accordingly, the academic programme will be carried out by recognized experts in Sports Law, both from top-tier law firms as well as academia and arbitrators from international courts. It will cover everything from panel discussions, lectures, and hands-on workshops. The social programme will encompass everything one needs for a successful ICE: Sightseeing Tours, Clubbing, a Pubquiz, and a traditional Swiss dinner. Bon appétit!
