The Institute of International Economic Law’s 10th Annual
Academy of WTO Law & Policy will be held November 16 to 20, 2015 at
Georgetown University Law Center.
The Academy is an intensive professional development program on the law and policy of the World Trade Organization (WTO). It examines the legal obligations and policy underpinnings of the WTO and its agreements, in the context of how the WTO operates and how it relates to national governments. It strengthens participants’ critical thinking about the role of the WTO in solving commercial problems and addressing fundamental policy challenges. Academy presenters are international trade law experts, many of whom negotiated the WTO Agreements at issue.
This non-degree program is designed to build capacity to take advantage of the multilateral trading system, by training legal professionals, trade policy officials, members of the international business, IGO and NGO communities, academics and others – including those from developing countries and transition economies. A law or economics degree is not necessary to attend the Academy.
