IIEL Global Trade Academy:
Legal Foundations and New Directions,
the WTO & Beyond in an Era of Globalization Backlash


Join us as Georgetown Laws Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) convenes the 12th Global Trade Academy from November 13-17. The Global Trade Academy is a pillar of IIEL's Executive Education curriculum with over a decade of experience in training government, NGO, international organization and private sector leaders the world over. The 2017 Academy examines the legal foundations of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and its agreements, with a deep dive into the most cutting-edge global trade issues of the day and a focus on trade in an era of globalization backlash.

IIEL Executive Education program faculty ask the tough questions, including:

What are todays hot-button commercial issues in an ever-changing global environment?;
What are the WTOs future prospects, policy limitations and lessons for global governance?;
What implications may the WTO have for next generation issues like tax and the digital economy?; and
How does the WTO relate to other global institutional and transnational actors?

Who should attend? Diplomats, 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.

IIEL hosts fora for policy debate and research with a wide range of international organizations, firms, NGOs and government agencies, and welcomes new partnerships. We also contribute to the analysis of today's most pressing global economic law and policy issues, via our Issue Brief Series, In the Know newsletter, and publications such as the Legal Aspects of Brexit, among other mechanisms.
