LAW333  R  INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC LAW

Course Description
This course is designed to introduce students to principles of international economic law. No background in economics is required. Roughly one half 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. The other half will be spent on international investment treaties and related dispute settlement. The course will highlight how trade and investment intersect with international finance, national security issues, and concerns about labor and the environment. The class will include simulation activities addressing areas of law and policy from the perspectives of governments, private actors, and intergovernmental organizations.
