Video: Jamie Susskind & Richard Berry discuss Doping Mitigation

This is the third in our latest series of short video briefings from Littleton’s Sports Law Group. In this series, our own members of chambers have been joined by guests from some of the firms we have worked together with on sports law disputes. Once again we are aiming to discuss key legal issues, explore their application within the particular and often extraordinary context of sport. 

Jamie
Susskind
and Richard Berry, from Lewis Silkin LLP, discuss the legal
implications of an athlete testing positive for a prohibited substance taken
outside of competition. In
this 5-minute video they cover:

  • Anti-Doping
    – Social use of prohibited substances
  • Starting
    Point: Four years can be reduced to two
  • Further
    Reductions: No/No Significant Fault or Negligence
  • Other Pleas in
    Mitigation
