課程概述

The World Trade Organization (WTO) serves as the only and the most important multilateral institution addressing the rules of trade between nations. In today’s globalized world, as trade increases and regional market integration deepens, legal issues of international economic relations are becoming more and more complicated. The issues facing the WTO are widening and go beyond a purely trade dimension. It is of immense importance for law students to have some broad understanding about WTO laws so as to know the essence of globalization and economic integration. The basic knowledge of WTO is also useful for understanding other fields of law, such as intellectual property law, service related laws (financial regulations, telecommunication laws, among others), international health law, and public international law. This course will be conducted in English.
Main topic to be discussed:
1. From GATT 1947 to WTO, WTO Agreements and WTO Jurisprudence
2. Dispute Settlement Understanding
3. Border Measures: Tariffs and Quantitative Restrictions
4. Most-Favoured-Nation Treatment
5. National Treatment
6. General Exceptions
7. Regional Trade Agreements
8. Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade
9. Agreement on Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures
10. Antidumping
11. Subsidies
12. Safeguards
13. Trade in Services: Principles, Liberalization, Specific Sectors and other Disciplines
14. TRIPS Agreement: Principles, Individual Intellectual Property Rights and Enforcement

There will be two guest speakers to deliver speeches.
