This is an introductory level course that will include a brief introduction to economic principles used to analyze international trade. These include the basic principles and underlying logic of the World Trade Organization (WTO) law, and the world trading system. Both institutional and substantive law of the WTO will be discussed. The institutional law topics covered will include membership and decision-making; the institutions of WTO; and dispute settlement and proceedings. The substantive law topics will include rules on market access; the most-favored nation principle; national treatment; safeguard measures; anti-dumping measures; subsidies and countervailing measures; trade in services; and intellectual property. This course will also consider the relationship of trade and the WTO to societal issues such as the environment, human rights, and labor standards.
The student's final grade will be based on a final examination.
