Course Overview: Designed to introduce students to the law and institutions governing international trade and investment relations and to provide them with a better understanding of the rules, norms,   principles, and methods of dispute resolution surrounding global commerce.  The course will focus on disputes that take place between two or more countries and the various forums – national, regional and multilateral – in which these disputes are resolved.  We begin with an overview of issues that cut across various types of international transactions, including the role       of international lawyers, international dispute resolution, the place of international law in the U.S. legal system, the extraterritorial application of domestic law, the World Trade Organization and regional trading arrangements (NAFTA, the EU, etc.), and the rules governing national trade, investment and currency flows.  The course also will explore the interaction and compatibility of international trade rules with the rules governing intellectual property protection, environmental protection, labor and human rights, among other issues.
