Inaugural CIL-NUS Academy of International Trade

April 10 - May 19

It is in the arena of world trade that the most important conflicts and battles, or cooperation and progress, take place and in which both overall prosperity and even pacific relations of our interdependent global society will be determined. The GATT/WTO constitutes the essential framework, the ‘Higher Law’ or even the ‘Economic Constitution’ of our international legal order.

In this Inaugural Centre for International Law National University of Singapore (CIL-NUS) Academy of International Trade, the fundamental building blocks of the international economic legal order will be highlighted, paying special attention to contemporary geopolitical pressures and the new regional agreements.

Spanning 32 classroom hours over 4 weeks (equivalent to a full module at leading law schools), this Academy taught by internationally-recognized trade law scholars is designed to achieve simultaneously 2 goals:

  1. The general course of 8 lessons gives an overview of the system with a sharp outlining of its fundamental underlying legal principles.
  2. The 4 specialist modules (2 lessons per week over 4 weeks) spotlight critical topics on (a) geopolitics and industrial policy, (b) dispute settlement, (c) regional trade agreements, and (d) digital trade and megaregional agreements.
