A think tank specialised
in Football Law
The International Association of Football Lawyers is a forum for the exchange of information and experience between lawyers specialized in this field.
The Association aims to value and assert the activity and image of football lawyers.
Our Association is international
Sports is by definition universal, hence so should be the law that governs it.
The independence of lawyers and their professional ethics must serve football in its social dimension.
We value law as much as sport and we think that our ethics as independent lawyers can contribute to the development of football all the while enhancing the respect of fundamental rights.
Mission and Activities
AIAF intends to be a main referent with the public and private authorities which regulate football and to actively take part in the development of international and national football regulations.
The AIAF members are encouraged to participate in discussions on any specific subjects in football law through different task groups.
AIAF organizes an annual Congress focusing on a relevant theme in football law, which is held every time in a different country.
Words of AIAF President
Patricia Moyersoen has been a member of the Paris Bar since 1985. She has been the founder and head of the law firm MOYERSOEN Avocats since 1988 and has been President of the International Association of Football Lawyers (AIAF) since its creation.
The objective of the AIAF is therefore not only to create an international network of lawyers specialized in football law, but also to become and be recognized as one of the players in international football.
Today, the AIAF gathers 100 lawyers specialized in football law, spread over five continents and 34 countries.
We have organized six congresses since the association’s creation, during which we have worked on the main themes of international football law. The AIAF Congresses are not similar to other seminars and conferences on football law. Indeed, our congresses are organized in the form of highly interactive debates and workshops.
Thanks to our partnership with Football Legal, our congresses are based on very serious scientific documentation and our debates have an international resonance.
The very international nature of the AIAF and its Congresses also makes it possible to understand the difficulties faced by international football bodies because, in truth, it is very difficult to impose international standards when each country has built and developed its national football on the basis of its own legal culture and football history.“
