KLRCA Certificate Programme in Sports Arbitration 2018

KLRCA Certificate Programme in Sports Arbitration 2018

Event Description

The Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration (KLRCA) has identi­ed the need for resolution of disputes in the sports industry in Malaysia. Arbitration has been known to be an effective medium to resolve disputes amicably and that conviction remains a principal catalyst of the upcoming Malaysian Sports Tribunal (MST). With the upcoming establishment of MST, the sports ministry and associations alike will be able to pass on the intricacies of dealing with sporting disputes to the newly formed body and in turn focus on the development and capacity re­nement of their respective portfolio.

 

To this end, a specialised set of MST Arbitration Rules is currently being ­nalised, along with a specialist panel of Sports Arbitrators drawing on both arbitration and sports communities, and the drafting of a ‑exible cost structure. Accordingly, there will exist a need for sports stakeholders to familiarize themselves with the technical aspects of MST’s framework, which to an extent mirrors the CAS system.

 

In Malaysia, sporting dispute resolution remains at its infancy, where knowledge and experience in the theoretical and practical aspects of sports dispute resolution at national and international levels amongst sports stakeholders throughout Malaysia has been scarce at best.
