Course Description
This course is designed to introduce students to principles of international economic law. No background in economics is required. Roughly one third of the course will be spent on the basic disciplines of the World Trade Organization and free trade agreements, as well as the U.S. regulatory system governing the flow of commerce between the United States and its trading partners. An additional third will be spent on international investment treaties and related dispute settlement. The remaining course sessions will be spent on other tools of international economic law, such as sanctions, and current issues, such as e-commerce and currency manipulation. The class will include simulation activities addressing areas of law and policy from the perspectives of governments, private actors, and intergovernmental organizations. Students will also be asked to prepare a final paper or policy note on a relevant topic.
