New Course from BIICL: International Trade Law
The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) is delighted to announce the launch of a new (Virtual) Short Course on International Trade Law. The training course offers an in-depth dynamic and applied knowledge of the regulatory framework of the multilateral trading system, covering both the institutional and substantive law of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). The WTO has played a central role in promoting and regulating international trade liberalisation since 1994 and continues to be a major actor in global economic governance.
Delivered by leading academics, practitioners and experts in the field, the training course will offer a practical insight into the most recent developments, at a critical time for international trade law, international governance and connectivity.
The course will run over 10 Sessions over five days: 28 May– 25 June 2021.
Charges, Discounts and Booking
The fee for the course is £550 per person.
