Virtual Global Trade Academy 2021
March 22 / 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
The Georgetown Law Institute of International Economic Law’s (IIEL) virtual, five-day Global Trade Academy (GTA) will tackle these tough questions by providing participants with a custom designed program exploring the legal foundations of the global trading system, along with key FTAs, regional trade agreements, and aspects of U.S. trade law. Through presentations, interactive policy conversations, breakout/networking sessions and a simulation, participants will learn from leading experts about the origins of the system; as well as take a deep dive into the most cutting-edge developments and disputes shaping the global economy. The GTA is a pillar of IIEL’s Executive Education program with over a decade of experience in training government, NGO, international organization, and private sector leaders. Joining with colleagues from around the globe, GTA cohorts strengthen their critical thinking about the role of the WTO in solving real-world commercial problems, and addressing fundamental policy challenges.
