Getting Ready For the World Cup: Arbitration and Football, Heidelberg, June 6, 2104

Jogi Löw has named his squad for the World Cup in Brazil. And while the German players will be sweating in their training camp, University of Heidelberg, the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS) and DAV’s Sports Law Section are running a joint training camp of their own for lawyers to get them ready for the World Cup.

A one day conference on June 6, 2014, looks at the World Cup from various legal angles, primarily – but not exclusively – from an arbitration perspective. One session sounds particularly exiting: It brings together counsel for both parties in the Pechstein case, in which the District Court (Landgericht) München has recently issued a controversial judgment on the role of arbitration in sport, when it held an arbitration clause used by a sports in an athlete’s agreement federations to be invalid.
