Course DescriptionThis course analyzes the key legal and policy issues in international commerce, trade and investment. It focuses on the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and the World Trade Organization, NAFTA and trade remedies (antidumping, countervailing duties, safeguards, etc.) under United States and international law. Trade in goods, services, trade-related aspects of intellectual property, and to a limited extent, investment, are also considered, along with U.S. export controls and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Political and economic policy considerations as well as international and national statutory materials, cases and commentary are examined in an effort to understand international trade law and the world trading system in theory and practice.
