Five QCs, two other barristers, two senior solicitors and a magistrate have been appointed to the National Anti-Doping Panel (NADP) to help tackle drugs cheats in UK sports.
The 16-strong line-up was announced by One Essex Court barrister and former FA Premier League chief executive Peter Leaver QC, who was appointed president of the NADP in February.
Leaver said he hoped all UK sports would eventually put doping cases before the panel. Currently many sports have their own tribunals for drugs cheats.
He added: "We are trying to get a consistent national anti-doping policy in place across the range of sports in this country."
Legal members include 39 Essex Street silk Richard Davies QC, Deputy High Court judge Robert Englehart QC, Charles Flint QC from Blackstone chambers, David Phillips QC from Wilberforce Chambers and Farrar's Building's Patrick Harrington QC, who becomes vice president.
