February’s issue of World Sports Advocate

February's issue of World Sports Advocate - formerly World Sports Law Report - provides expert analysis and thought leadership on the key legal, regulatory and policy issues in the sporting world.

In this month's issue we feature an indepth article on the recent case involving French footballer, Lassana Diarra. Benoît Keane, Solicitor and Avocat at Keane Legal considers other similar cases and analyses Diarra's case in detail, focusing in particular on why, despite a Belgian court holding that the FIFA Transfer Rules had contravened EU law, this is not the next 'Bosman ruling.'

Another highlight of February's issue is a detailed look at the issue of discrimination of sportswomen for becoming mothers. María José López González, Lawyer at MJLG, discusses the relevant laws in Spain and how, despite the existence of these laws, this practice of discrimination still continues.
