The Dean Rusk International Law Center and the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law will host a daylong conference titled “The Next Generation of International Trade Agreements.” The conference, which will mark the center’s 40th anniversary, will feature expert academics, policymakers, corporate counsels and practitioners will explore the shifting trajectory of trade agreements. Spurring this change are events like Brexit, the status of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, calls to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, the acceleration of talks on the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and China’s One Belt One Road initiative.
Participants will include representatives from the U.S. Department of Commerce, Amazon.com, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, The Coca-Cola Company, New York University, the Queen’s University (Canada), Vanderbilt University, Carter’s, Panasonic North America, the University of California, Irvine, the University of Warwick (United Kingdom) and Harvard Law School.
There is no cost for the conference, but registration is required online at www.law.uga.edu/gjicl2017. Attorneys are eligible for continuing legal education credit for a fee.
