This class is an intensive workshop designed to use case studies of U.S. agency decisions in conjunction with WTO jurisprudence related to those decisions and issues raised in the decisions: 1) to develop a student’s substantive understanding of five areas of trade remedy law; and 2) to introduce students to the procedural and substantive aspects of the various phases of trade remedy disputes in the U.S. and at the international level. The class will include an examination of U.S. law and WTO agreements on safeguards, antidumping and subsidies, injury requirements, and the standard of review for each of the various trade remedies.
