This has also been expressed by the guest of honor of the senate reception on the eve of the conference, Matthieu Reeb, Secretary General of the International Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Lausanne.
The "ISLA International Sports Law Conference" was held at Bucerius Law School in Hamburg on October 11 and 12, 2013.
