News from here and there

Indian Court of Arbitration for Sports

Acting on the directives of the International Olympic Committee, the Indian Olympic Association has constituted the Indian Court of Arbitration for Sports (ICAS). All disputes relating to sports under the Indian Olympic Association will be decided henceforth by the ICAS. The ICAS will have eight members, all retired judges of the higher judiciary.

LCIA without LC

We had earlier posted about a petition by the Association of Indian Lawyers seeking to remove the phrase "London Court" from "London Court of International Arbitration". The Delhi High Court has directed the LCIA the file a written statement within four weeks. The matter is listed for September 9. Watch this space for more.

New Arbitration Centre

The Government of Mauritius, LCIA and a new Mauritian company, Mauritius International Arbitration Centre Limited (MIAC), have entered into an agreement for establishing a new arbitration centre in Mauritius, to be known as the LCIA-MIAC Arbitration Centre. The LCIA is really expanding its horizons! More on that here.

  1. A court of arbitration for sports with eight retired judges of the higher judiciary sounds like a disaster. I have my reservations about judges as arbitrators, but even more so about judges as arbitrators in sports arbitration - a further specialized field. Of course, I'd be happy to be proven wrong.
