In Part II of ‘Conversation with the Godfather’ Nick De Marco QC and Michael Beloff QC have a fascinating discussion about some of the most controversial and pressing issues in sports law and football in particular.

In further discussion of all thing’s sports law and his newly published memoir, MJBQC - A Life Within and Without the Law, The Sports Law Podcast investigates the following questions:  

• What are the limits of judicial intervention in sport and how has this developed over the years?

• Has self-regulation of football failed, and do we need an independent statutory regulator?

• Will the courts now exercise judicial review over the football regulator and will special interest groups, like supporters associations, be able to intervene in proceedings?

• How does competition law and the law relating to the restraint of trade sit with a system in which some sports bodies have acted like cartels?

• What are the differences between being a sports advocate and an arbitrator?

• How does an arbitrator deal with apparent bias challenges, and how did Michael feel about Nick’s challenge to him in the recent Newcastle United case?

• Is there a need for greater transparency and more open justice in sports decisions?

• And why is sports law by far the most gratifying area of law to practise in?
