June's issue of World Sports Advocate

June's issue of World Sports Advocate 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 developments relevant to the sporting world, including hyperandrogenism, anti-doping, club ownership, whistleblowing, and integrity.

In our cover article this month, Rupert Beloff, Barrister at 4-5 Gray's Inn Square, provides insight into the concerns raised since publication of the IAAF's new Regulations on Eligibility for Female Classification, the delicacy of the issues involved and the likely grounds for legal challenge.

Elsewhere in the issue, Jack Mitchell, Barrister at Old Square Chambers, considers the European Commission's proposals for new whistleblowing laws in the context of sport and hopes that they may serve as the catalyst required to encourage all sports governing bodies to review their current procedures and better understand what they should be doing to protect sporting integrity.
