Blackshaw, Ian, The International Sports Law Journal


Sports Law in South Africa by Andre M. Louw 2010 Wolters Kluwer Law & Business The Netherlands Paperback Pages 512 ISBN 978-90-411-3314-4 Price $162

South Africa is a sporting nation - in fact, the country has often been called a 'sports mad nation' - and has hosted a number of major international sports events to date, including the highly successful FIFA World Cup in 2010, which made a profit of US$1.1 billion! No doubt, South Africa will go on to host other sporting events in the future, including the Summer Olympics. So, this Book is a timely and welcome addition to the International Sports Law literature for both practitioners and academics.

Indeed, the coverage of the subject is comprehensive, including such topics dear to the heart of your reviewer as sports image rights - unlike the UK, South African Law recognises 'personality rights' - and alternative dispute resolution of sports disputes, including an analysis of the CAS Award in Pistorius v. IAAF (the so-called 'Blade-Runner' Case).

The Book also deals with safety and security issues, which are of particular concern to event organisers and rights holders in these present 'war on terror' times. In fact, the Author quite rightly draws attention to this particular subject in the following terms:

"It is expected that a significant concern for the organizers of major events will in future be the safety and security of participants, officials and spectators...... Sports lawyers would be advised to take a more active interest in the legal aspects and implications in this regard."

The Book also covers employment law issues, doping, and criminal and civil law liability in the sporting arena. All important topics!
