IIEL Global Trade Academy: Legal Foundations and New Directions of the Global Trading System

02/11/2019 at 8:00 AM (US/Eastern)
Georgetown Law Gewirz Building 600 New Jersey Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20001

Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) will hold the 13th Academy this Winter, from February 11-15, 2019. The Global Trade Academy is a pillar of IIEL’s Executive Education program with over a decade of experience in training government, NGO, international organization and private sector leaders the world over.  The 2018-2019 iteration of the Academy examines the legal foundations of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and its agreements, with a deep dive into the most cutting-edge global trade issues of the day.

IIEL Executive Education program faculty ask the tough questions, including:

  • What are today’s hot-button international commercial issues?;
  • What are the WTO’s future prospects?;
  • What is the future of the Appellate Body?; and
  • How does the WTO relate to other global institutional and transnational commercial actors? 

    Who should attend?  Diplomats, legal professionals, trade policy officials, members of the international business, IGO and NGO communities, academics, and others – including those from developing countries and transition economies.

    Advance registration discounts available only through February 4th.
