June's issue of World Sports Advocate

June's issue of World Sports Advocate - formerly World Sports Law Report - 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 topics relevant to the sporting world, including doping sanctions, gambling, the duty of care in sport, and competition law.

Highlights of the latest issue include indepth analysis of the Roberto Heras case by Rubén Agote and Jose M. Martínez of Cuatrecasas, after the 12 year legal case came to a conclusion recently with Heras being granted compensation for an illegal doping sanction issued by the Spanish Cycling Federation. Rubén and Jose analyse the Court's ruling which focused on the Public Administration's responsibility for the issuance of such a sanction.

Garth Towan, Senior Associate at Lander & Rogers, provides a breakdown of the new National Sports Plan put forward by the Australian Government, which includes the possible introduction of a national lottery to fund sport and an independent national sports tribunal to tackle doping.
