In recent years, the increasing regulation of sport has meant there is a need for competitors, athletes, clubs, managers, coaches, medical professionals and sports organisations to be fully aware of their legal rights and responsibilities.
Allegations of misconduct, including doping, financial mismanagement and corruption need to be swiftly handled with decisive and practical action.
