In the increasingly global market, understanding issues of international trade is vital for the modern business attorney. The body of law administered by the World Trade Organization is an essential component of trade law, and is important to understanding more specific national measures including customs duties and trade remedies, as well as regional trade agreements such as NAFTA.
This course will cover economic and political theories of trade; the WTO as an organization; the major principles and exceptions of international trade law; and the status and future outlook of the current round of global trade negotiations. We will also consider how the rules of trade law interact with other important issues, such as protection of the environment and human health.
