Course Description

Trade has become one of the most important areas of international law and policy - particularly since the adoption of the WTO Agreement in 1994.  This course will consider the WTO’s structure and institutions, its core rules, the exceptions to those core rules and the powerful dispute settlement mechanisms in place to underpin the regime.  The course is designed for those who wish to enter trade policy work or practice WTO law in any of its specialties.  It will also be helpful for those who wish to enter domestic commercial practice but are nonetheless interested in understanding the international law and policy framework affecting trade between nations.
