The German Court of Arbitration for Sport is a private and independent entity devoted to sports-related dispute resolution. About a decade after it was founded, it has become an integral pillar in the anti-doping fight. But also beyond the fight against doping, the German Court of Arbitra-tion for Sport is becoming increasingly significant. In view of its growing importance, this thesis examines its organizational structure (first part), analyzes its Arbitration Rules, which were cre-ated specifically for the resolution of sports-related disputes (second part), and evaluates the published decisions of the German Court of Arbitration for Sport (third part).
The first part describes the functional and working methods as well as the tasks and responsibili-ties, and also the organs and committees of the German Court of Arbitration for Sport. Particular attention is paid to its affiliation to the German Institution of Arbitration and the internal struc-ture of the latter.
The second part focuses on the Arbitration Rules of the German Court of Arbitration for Sport. The strictly norm-oriented approach depicts the articles of the sports-related Arbitration Rules, which form the procedural basis for the conduct and administration of arbitration proceedings before the German Court of Arbitration for Sport. Since April 1, 2016, the second, revised ver-sion of the Arbitration Rules of the German Court of Arbitration for Sport applies.
The third part is dedicated to the decisions of the German Court of Arbitration for Sport being publicly available. The evaluation of the decisions concentrates on the content and structure of the arbitral awards rendered by the German Court of Arbitration for Sport.
As a result, it must be noted that the German Court of Arbitration for Sport is a genuine arbitral tribunal pursuant to section 1025 et seq. of the German Code of Civil Procedure. It satisfies the requirements of the rule of law and offers a suitable means of resolving sport-related disputes within a competent, independent and final decision in a time- and cost-efficient manner. The German Court of Arbitration for Sport is not part of organized sport and acts independently of sports associations and sports organizations. The German Court of Arbitration for Sport is not confined to the settlement of anti-doping disputes but may be seized for the resolution of all sports-related disputes.
