Conference: Developing Countries in the WTO Legal System

The University of Minnesota Law School is sponsoring an American Society of International Law Regional Meeting on Developing Countries in the WTO Legal System, May 24-26, 2007, in Minneapolis. The program is here. Why attend?
This conference will discuss the role of the World Trade Organization - its laws, policies and institutions - in economic development. The conference addresses a groundbreaking work of U.S. international trade law scholarship, "Developing Countries in the GATT Legal System," by Robert E. Hudec, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary and revised publication. Participants will have occasion to comment on the revised and updated edition of the book, edited by Joel Trachtman, and will present original papers on the conference theme.
