Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description The growing importance of international trade in the global economy has made international trade law one of the most important topics in international relations and international law. This course focuses on the international legal framework for international economic relations. It also addresses the new generation of free trade agreements (TTIP, TPP, CETA). The course will cover political and economic arguments for and against free trade, the history of the GATT system and the creation of the WTO, and the core topics of the WTO#s complex set of rules on international trade in goods, services and intellectual property. These topics will include WTO dispute settlement, tariffs, quantitative restrictions, principles of non-discrimination (most-favored-nation treatment and national treatment), exceptions to WTO rules, agreements on sanitary and phytosanitary measures and technical barriers to trade, anti-dumping law and counter-veiling duties. In the domain of investment protection, the course covers, in particular, the concept of expropriation, including creeping expropriation, the fair and equitable treatment standard and dispute settlement. The course is based on the Socratic Method and relies on the active contribution of the participants. It presents the material through cases and case-analysis. The course has no pre-requisites, and no knowledge of economics is required. The final grade will be based on class-participation (30%) and final examination (70%).
