This seminar will serve as a forum of students who are interested in roles of laws in global and domestic governance, particularly in the economic area. The aim of this course is for students to obtain both the knowledge of international trade and investment law and the skills which will enable them to analyze to what extent regulatory measures that have impact on international trade and/or foreign investment are consistent with these laws. It also provides the basis for the analysis of issues of controversy such as the role of these fields of law in the global legal order. Participants are expected to do a presentation on a given case, or do a mock arbitration. Participants are advised to also take the course International Economic Law (Spring).
Presentation schedule will be discussed in the first class (April 12).
Attendence: 30%, presentation: 40%, contribution: 30%
