International Trade Policy     LAW-637

This course provides an introduction to the legal framework of international trade as embodied in the WTO/GATT Agreements, other multilateral and bilateral free trade agreements, as well as U.S. domestic trade law. We will examine the basic provisions of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the other core WTO Agreements including, the trade agreements on intellectual property rights (TRIPS), services (GATS) and investment (TRIMS); WTO dispute settlement procedures and jurisprudence including recent decisions; and unilateral trade remedies. We will integrate the discussions on these substantive areas with an examination of current and evolving issues related to international trade rules.
