The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, is the highest legal authority and arbitration tribunal in charge of settling international disputes related to sport. When there is an arbitration agreement between the parties specifying recourse to CAS, CAS international arbitrators act to solve the disputes submitted. The CAS international arbitrators are composed of distinguished professionals in the field of international law, international arbitration, and sports law.

In 2019, Maria A. Gwynn, Senior Research Associate at GEG and Global Leaders Fellow (2016-2018) was appointed as an International Arbitrator of the court. Further to Dr Gwynn’s expertise in the field of law and international arbitration, she was also a member of the National Fencing Team of Paraguay, representing her country in numerous international competitions.
