Sports Law Q&A: Lord Sebastian Coe & Jonathan Taylor QC

Adam Lewis QC (Blackstone Chambers) and Jonathan Taylor QC (Bird & Bird) are two of the world’s leading sports lawyers. They are also the co-editors, and co-authors with many other leading sports law practitioners, of what many in the industry consider to be the sports law bible: ‘Sport: Law and Practice’. The fourth edition of the book was published by Bloomsbury 11 March 2021. To mark the launch, Jonathan Tayor QC spoke with Lord Sebastian Coe (President, World Athletics), who wrote the foreword for the new book. They discussed Lord Coe’s views on various important issues for sports lawyers, such as the benefits of introducing best practice into sports governance, why Lord Coe is happy to have championed the creation of the ground-breaking Athletics Integrity Unit, and why World Athletics has taken such a firm position in relation to eligibility to compete in the female category (Semenya) or while using prostheses (Leeper).
