Location: McDonough 200, Georgetown University Law Center
Date: March 20, 2024
Organized by Center on Inclusive Trade and Development

This event is co-organized by United Nations ESCAP and the Georgetown Law Center on Inclusive Trade and Development (CITD) to launch the ‘Legal TINA’, a new tool powered by database and artificial intelligence. This event also aims to provide a forum for discussions on trends in regional trade agreement (RTA) negotiations and implications for trade negotiators.

Legal TINA is an extension of the original Trade Intelligence and Negotiation Adviser (TINA), providing guidance and analytical capabilities to develop the text and legal provisions of trade agreements. It allows users to explore the basic legal framework of trade agreements through questions on specific trade-related issues, helping negotiators to narrow down formulation of provisions based on priorities and needs. It also enables users to easily search and compare texts of existing trade agreements, making it easier to understand what text may be most acceptable to negotiating parties involved and what more ambitious provisions may be proposed.

Free breakfast refreshments will be served.
