Applications are considered by Sport Resolutions' Panel Appointments and Review Committee on a biannual basis, in the Spring and in the Autumn.
The service is made up of barristers' chambers, law firms and individual practitioners who are willing to provide pro-bono legal advice and representation to athletes, coaches, team officials, and other individuals appearing before Sport Resolutions and other sport specific tribunals. The pro-bono service was created to provide a safety net for unrepresented individuals who do not have the means to fund their own representation.
The service currently offers assistance in the following areas of law:
- Athlete selection and eligibility
- Athlete and player contracts
- Child and vulnerable adult safeguarding
- Paralympic classification
Sport Resolutions is particularly keen to hear from practitioners with the skills and experience to represent individuals before the National Anti-Doping Panel (NADP) and the National Safeguarding Panel (NSP), and other International Federation (IF) or National Governing Body (NGB) tribunals administered by Sport Resolutions. Members of the list are expected to assist where they can but are not obliged to accept all requests that are made.
If you are interested in joining this, please complete the Pro Bono List Declaration Form and return it with a copy of your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
