On February 2, 2022, Graham Arthur, an independent lawyer, a member of the working and monitoring groups of the Council of Europe and UNESCO, a member of the Classification Committee of the International Paralympic Committee, as well as a representative of RUSADA in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), conducted an anti-doping educational webinar for members of the RUSADA Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee (hereinafter - DAC RUSADA). The main purpose of this webinar was to improve the qualifications of the members of the DAC RUSADA: improving theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the interpretation and application of international anti-doping law. Members of the RUSADA DAC, together with employees of the RUSADA Results processing department, studied the main theoretical issues of the application of anti-doping norms in practice, and also considered the most significant cases in the CAS practice.
During the webinar, Graham Arthur spoke about the key rules for distributing the burden of proof and evaluating evidence, considered issues related to the concepts of "intent" and "degree of guilt", and also analyzed the CAS practice on anti-doping disputes. Members of the DAC RUSADA actively participated in the discussion of theoretical issues and the analysis of judicial precedents. In addition, written materials with more detailed information on the topics were sent to all participants of the webinar.
