As world trade provides new growth opportunities for many nations, their governments have become more adept in navigating not only international legal frameworks and institutions that govern global trade, but also the domestic customs and trade laws of their trading partners. Those working in the international trading community need to understand the workings of negotiating entities, such as the World Trade Organization and the World Customs Organization, and the impact of bi-lateral, regional, and multi-lateral trade agreements, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement, to aid governments, businesses, and others to obtain the benefits of the international trading regime.

In their lecture, Judges Richard K. Eaton and Leo M. Gordon of the U.S. Court of International Trade will give an overview of the process and substance of international trade law, including its legal principles and rules. They will also describe how U.S. domestic customs and trade law intersects with the international legal frameworks and how these regimes provide opportunities in a variety of different practice-oriented settings. Finally, they will speak about the course they will teach at New York Law School in Fall 2015 – International Trade Law.
