Description
This course examines the law of international trade in goods and services, focusing principally on the law of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT).  We will examine international rules concerning, among other things, tariff and non-tariff barriers, discrimination, dumping, government subsidies, and safeguards.  We will also study the role of regional trade systems, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).  The course will also spend time considering the relationship between trade and other regulatory areas or social values, such as environmental protection, health and safety standards, human rights, and intellectual property protection.
