Trade Law Enforcement and Justice in Changing Times - Part 3

Date of Event



This conference will provide an in-depth analysis on the current state of international trade law as practiced in the United States and offer a preview of how upcoming policy changes may affect the nation’s trade relations. The late-2016-early-2017 period is shaping up to be particularly consequential to the future of United States trade law and practice. Besides changes associated with the transition to a new administration, matters including a possible "lame duck" legislative vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and derivative regulatory changes, current consideration of China's Non-Market Economy status in light of the expiry of its WTO Accession Protocol and negotiations following (last year's) expiration of the Canada-United States Softwood Lumber Agreement, will, together, affect the administration and enforcement of U.S. trade statutes for years to come. Add to these events, the continued erosion of U.S. trade agencies' authority to apply U.S. trade statutes by nondeferential review from international trade tribunals and the possible intensification of the trend due to the multiplication of dispute settlement mechanisms that bypass review by the U.S. Court of International Trade and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Besides having the Honorable Leo M. Gordon, Judge of the U.S. Court of International Trade as Distinguished Speaker, this conference will feature a select panel of trade counsel from the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce, who will be joined by a leading member of the Washington D.C. Trade Bar. Case Western Law Professor Juscelino F. Colares will introduce and mediate our guests. A second panel, formed exclusively by Case Western Law alumni, will discuss opportunities in trade law.
