This course examines the central concepts which are the foundation of international trade law. Through the course’s lectures, supplementary seminars and notes, along with practical group work on an international trade law problem in moot format, students will learn the establishment and operation of the World Trade Organization and current issues the WTO and its members are facing. Students will also learn how Most Favoured Nation and National Treatment concepts are being currently applied, as well as how technical regulations, along with health and safety regulations at the national level can come into conflict with the growth of freer trade among nations. Freer trade in goods, services and investment (along with agriculture and intellectual property, time permitting) will also be examined along with the exceptions to freer trade that can be applied by WTO members at the national level and the circumstances where those exceptions can be applied. New developments in regional trade blocks such as the proposed Canada-EU Free Trade Agreement and the Trans Pacific Partnership will also be examined, time permitting.
