The Georgetown University Law Center and the Institute of International Economic Law are delighted to announce that the 2024 Global Trade Academy will take place in-person on April 15-17 at the Georgetown University Law Center and April 18-19 at the law offices of King & Spalding in Washington, DC. For the first time since the pandemic, the Academy will meet live in the heart of the nation’s capital, bringing together participants from governments, IGOs, NGOs, and the private sector, and allowing attendees to meet and exchange views with leading experts as well as participants from around the world. RSVP here to reserve your spot.

Every year, the Global Trade Academy tackles tough questions by providing participants with a custom-designed program that explores the legal foundations of the global trading system, the role of regional trade agreements, and the evolution of national policies in the face of rapidly changing global priorities and heightened geopolitical rivalries. Through presentations, interactive policy conversations, breakout/networking sessions, a simulation, and a keynote speech, participants will learn from leading experts about core rules regulating international trade, as well as the most recent developments and disputes shaping the global economy. 

For more information, please view our brochure and agenda for the 2024 Global Trade Academy. Additional information can be found on our website. — 

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. By design, this Executive Education program is open to more experienced leaders and younger professionals alike. One need not be an attorney to attend. 

Continuing Legal Education (CLE) 

The 2023 Global Trade Academy offered participants 29 CLE credits, and we anticipate offering a similar number of CLE credits for this year’s program.
