Carla Gonçalves Borges (Partner) and Miguel Lourenço e Silva (Associate) publish, in the most recent edition of the Sports Law Magazine of the Portuguese Football Federation, an article entitled "Analysis of Case Law: Access to the Court of Arbitration for 'Private Forum Sports Disputes'?

The article critically addresses the system of access to the Court of Arbitration for Sport ("TAD") and the way in which the law contributes to an inadequate solution that ultimately subverts the very full jurisdiction of the TAD, based on the analysis of two judgments of the Court of Appeal of Oporto in which the jurisdiction of the TAD in matters of necessary arbitration is discussed.
