ASD unterstützt den „LawInSport Sports Law Arbitration Moot“ 2024

We are proud to announce that we support the 5th edition of the „Sports Law Arbitration Moot (SLAM)“. The SLAM Grand Finals will take place on 12-13 April 2024 at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (“CAS”) in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The „SLAM“ is a student moot competition, organised by the renowned international sports law network „LawInSport“ to promote greater knowledge of the values and rules of international sports arbitration, the go to dispute resolution mechanism in the sector.

SLAM provides students from around the world the opportunity to:

  • Develop and showcase their legal and advocacy skills before the world’s leading arbitrators and practitioners virtually and in-person;
  • Gain real world experience of international sports arbitration under the leading procedural rules;
  • Receive complimentary training on drafting written submissions and advocacy from some of the world’s leading advocates and arbitrators in world sport.
  • Students compete for the chance to win:

£1500 for the winners of the competition

£1000 for the runners-up of the competition


Alexander Engelhard, Counsel at ASD Law, said “SLAM is the leading sports arbitration moot competition in the world and we are delighted to support it once again. ASD’s sports dispute resolution practice is a main pillar of our work and we are committed to help develop tomorrow’s leaders in the sector”. Dr. David Stadtfeld, Senior Associate at ASD Law added “as a former (Vis) moot court participant, I made some great experiences around developing my advocacy skills and community building during my studies, which highly benefited my professional career. I am now beyond excited to be involved with another prestigious and truly international moot competition, and to share my knowledge and experiences with ambitious students.”

Sean Cottrell, CEO at LawInSport added „We are thrilled to welcome ASD Law as a Silver Sponsor again for the 5th Edition of SLAM. Their support will be instrumental in building upon our relationship from the last edition in providing our participants with the opportunity to hone their skills in a world-class setting. Arbitration plays a crucial role in sports law in ensuring fairness and upholding the integrity of the game. This competition fosters the next generation of legal minds who will champion these values, and ASD Law’s continued partnership underscores their commitment to the future of sports law.“
